The party is over for Creigh Deeds. Despite the fact that Obama, Clinton and Warner are scheduled to appear over the next few days, the Dems are running from him. And for good reason. He's a crappy candidate and will get his clock cleaned by McDonnell. McDonnell did a great job of sloughing off "thesis gate" with compelling testimonials from the women he appointed or worked with as AG. Not to mention, he had a positive attitude in his talk about building jobs and roads for Virginians.
Deeds, on the other hand, ran nothing but a negative campaign. No real vision. And the Dems are already trying to protect the president, saying that Deed's loss wasn't Obama's fault.
Deeds was never strong, but the most significant factor is that Virginians already are sick of the socialist agenda advanced by Obama and the Dems.
