Poll: Will Virginia Birth A Vice President?Aug 04, 2008
As soon as the 2004 election was over, there was a lot written and said about Virginia supplying the nation with one, or even both, of the major party presidential candidates. Now, the buzz among both Democrats and Republicans, around the commonwealth and across the country, are that two Virginians are getting realistic consideration as vice presidential candidates. Democrats have been mulling over Governor Tim Kaine for about a week while this weekend Congressman Eric Cantor (R-7) emerged as a national Republican figure after much local speculation mushroomed throughout the blogosphere and, eventually, the mainstream media. Though neither one would have crossed anyone's mind for veep even several months ago, is it possible one — or both — could end up on a national ticket? Vote on the likelihood and let us know why and what you think of these two men with your comments.
