Deeds for Governor

The case for Deeds over McDonnell is clear and compelling.

Deeds is a reasonable centrist, McDonnell is a far-right conservative. Deeds has been up-front about the fact that the OD has little choice but to raise taxes to help solve its transportation problem. McDonnell wants to take the money out of the education budget...and, let me tell you, we don't have any to spare. (I'm the first to admit that Va universities have to do their part in hard times...but we're operating on virtually nothing as it is.)

Deeds is a moderate who's got a demonstrable record of finding a middle ground between reasonable liberal policies and the conservative positions held by many Virginians. Deeds is obviously a smart bet for governor; one can't really say the same thing about McDonnell.
