Waldo's VA Political Blogroll

He's got everything to lose
He thinks he can get into the governor's mansion, look over at the General Assembly, and say "let me show you guys how it's done."  Think they're all going to sit back in awe at the breadth of his vision?  So far I haven't seen much evidence of these specifics he claims to bring to the table, just a lot of generalities about education - it's good; energy - it's good, too, especially if it's clean, but he's not saying he'd be totally against the Surry plant as long as it brings jobs; and lots of positive feeling - positive makes us all feel good.  

He has a tendency, which I've noticed in his book, of making himself the "go-to" guy in anecdotes and examples.  He's supremely self-confident, but his self-confidence appears to lie mostly in his belief that he can talk anyone into anything.  It's not founded in his deep knowledge of a particular subject or process.  It's about his belief in the power of his own personality.  Even the answer he gave about how to attract business to Virginia focused on how he was going to go all over to every business and just talk businesses into investing in Virginia.
