I'm not sure this calls for anything past a paragraph, but I have noticed that a lot of people have packed up their blog and called it quits. As much as the die-hardest political junkie/activist would like to think otherwise, the most often used cliche in politics is that "politics should be the part-time job of every citizen," and when that part-time job ends, people do something else, like get on with the business of living their lives.  That initiates Blog Rolls to go dormant or extinct, and I think if we are to follow any Teddy Goodsen's good blog advise on getting the party going, or anyone giving good blog advise, then it seems to me that should start with us on the internet, so that the publius can get informed opinions and not dead links.So, should we be doing that? Just a thought.

On heath care, Deeds broke new ground by saying that as governor,he would consider opting out of a public health-care option if states are extended that right under legislation being considered in Congress.McDonnell,who opposes reform efforts in Washington,unequivocally said he would opt out if offered that choice. "I don't think a public option is necessary in any plan,and I would certainly consider opting out if that were available to Virginia"
