1. IMO, a Russ Feignold would have done better, but not a Kucinich
The formula isn't always "a real democrat/ progressive will do better." Campaigns count.

2. Exactly---We are in a time of NO Fakes. McDonnell was the Republican
A real Democrat with confidence in themselves could have made
it a real race.

3. My point exactly.
Did Deeds really expect to motivate all those new Obama voters by vowing to 'opt out' of a public option?

4. People didn't know what kind of dog he was.
All he did was talk about McDonnell's thesis. Nobody knew what he stood for, so they accepted McDonnell's framing of him as a tax raiser.

He ran a terrible campaign.
