Webb Will Block GOP's Filibuster

Today on CNN's "State of the Union," Sen. Jim Webb told John King that he would vote with Dems to break any Republican attempt to block the health care reform bill in Congress.

"One thing I did say to [Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid] is I will vote to proceed forward to debate," Webb said Sunday.
Meanwhile back at the ranch, Creigh Deeds is struggling to win support and Washington Post wrote last Friday that administration officials feel Deeds has no one to blame but himself.

Senior administration officials have expressed frustration with how Democrat R. Creigh Deeds has handled his campaign for governor, refusing early offers of strategic advice and failing to reach out to several key constituencies that helped Obama win Virginia in 2008...

[...]

A[n]...administration official, who...spoke on condition of anonymity, said: "Obama, Kaine and others had drawn a road map to victory in Virginia. Deeds chose another path."

Well...as to blame, I would add the gullible Democratic primary voters who listened to the Post and voted for Deeds instead of Moran or McAuliffe.

Would Sheila Johnson be mocking McAuliffe?? Would Wilder be denying the Democratic candidate for governor his endorsement?? Hell, would we be having this conversation if either McAuliffe or Moran had been the candidate...???

Mimi, good to see You're still in the mix, albeit not quite current. I am even further behind having missed your Howling commentary for more than two months. Anyway, even though I'm very late with my comment, I agree 100% with your comments about Creigh; the most inept campaign I've ever witnessed by either party in Va. Really sad, becuase i like Creigh personally but he just coudn't seem to get it out of his head that he wasn't still running for state Senate in his very rural district; he simply could not bring himself to leave his "comfort zone" of Deeds Country, which itself was a horible misnomer given that he he lost SW Va. and my former home county of Wise by a huge margin - McD. garnered 70% of the vote in Wise County !

Are you back in Va., still in MD, or where ? If you're back on Va. and might want to join me 4-5 Dec. at the DPVA quarterly meeting (Steering Committee mtg. Fri. eve., starting at 7:30 P.M. and Central Committee meeting Sat. starting at 10 A.M.. Meetings will be at the Staunton Historic District Stonewall Jackson Hotel (rate is $109, but HOJOs is just a few blocks away and is half the price. Give me a call or send an e-mail message. These meetings will decide who will be our new DPVA chair for the next 4 years, and right now it looks like it's between Brian and Terry (latest info. is that Cranwell won't run for re-election). It's party time in Stauntaon, and I'll buy your first couple rounds of drinks if you can join us in Staunton. Time to have a little fun before we get serious again about politics (o.k., politics can be fun too if we remember to socialize with our friends).

See you soon I hope, my dear "reformed Baptist" friend.

Oh dear, as you can see I don't go to my blog too often during the school year; too busy. And as luck would have it, it seems this was the weekend you were referring to. Hope you didn't get caught in the snow storm.

I went to my mom's this weekend but when it started snowing, I got the hell out of Dodge and came back to Annapolis.
 
Hey, just looking around some blogs, seems a pretty nice platform you are using. I'm currently using Wordpress for a few of my sites but looking to change one of them over to a platform similar to yours as a trial run. Anything in particular you would recommend about it?
