I'll let you know a secret: I can't stand Terry McAuliffe. If you were to make me list my least favorite Democrats, the list--regardless of how short--would include McAuliffe. The dude just makes my skin crawl. That said, I'd vote for him in a heartbeat if my other choice was Ken Cuccinelli.

The Cooch proved that no matter how much you might dislike a candidate, there is always someone worse. Cooch was worse, by a long shot. And though the tea baggers and Republican establishment alike will undoubtedly make much of the fact that McAuliffe "squeaked by," he still won, which is infinitely preferable to the chest-thumping that would have occurred had he lost.

And make no mistake, this is a win for Democrats. I heard, from Democrats and Republicans alike, that this was a referendum on ObamaCare. So, there you go. Squeaked by or not, it didn't lose the race for the Democrats. Even with a candidate that most Democrats would have to hold their noses to vote for. But perhaps the big question is: why did Virginia have such a sad choice to make in the first place?
