Post-Christmas Political Round-up

The Franklin News Post actually had positive things to say about Congressman-Elect Perriello; hopefully this is more than just Christmas goodwill, and this editorial will be emblematic of future coverage. For those of you out of district, this newspaper is located in Rep. Goode's hometown. Needless to say, its coverage (or non-coverage in some cases) of the congressional campaign was wanting. To the editorial's point, yes, Jody Brown and Florella Johnson are excellent picks to represent Franklin County on Tom's transition team.

On a different note, according to Perriello, "Buffy the Vampire Slayer is one of the most brilliant shows ever written."

My thoughts and prayers go out to the friends and family of Delilah Magnum, 58, who passed away this past weekend. Although I did not have the honor of working closely with Ms. Magnum, I do know that she worked tirelessly for both Tom and Obama in the Danville area. Her dedicated activism and humanitarian selflessness will surely be missed.

Jindal, 2012? Earlier in the month, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal said that he would not seek the presidency because he was happy with his current post. Jindal is now reserving judgment about a presidential bid, depending on how popular Obama will be at the time.
