Re: Will 2009 Wake Up Virginia Congressmen?

Well, Gerry Connolly, one of the potentially vulnerable Democrats in northern Virginia had this to say about Tuesday: “What the exit polls showed was real voter fatigue with how crowded the plate is. … We need to take a deep breath, step back and clean the plate before we add to it.” So do we put him down as a “no” on PelosiCare, or does he keep on voting down the line for the Obama agenda?

It is worth noting that Bob McDonnell carried Connolly’s district by a 55.1 to 44.7 percent margin. Maybe Creigh Deeds wasn’t the greatest candidate, but is Connolly so certain that it is safe to vote for the very things that McDonnell railed against, including a government takeover of healthcare? We’ll find out on Saturday, when Connolly, it appears, will be forced by his leadership to cast a vote.
