Washington Post Endorses Deeds

The Washington Post editorial board today endorses gubernatorial candidate, Creigh Deeds, for the Democratic primary. Money quote:
Our judgment, though, is based on who would make the best governor in the Warner-Kaine tradition, not who would be the strongest candidate. Like those Northern Virginia senators who have endorsed Mr. Deeds ... we believe that he understands Northern Virginia. We also believe that he has the character, experience and savvy to be a successful leader of the entire commonwealth.

It's wonderful that Deeds understands Northern Virginia. That way, when it splits from the rest of VA and holds its own gubernatorial race, he'll be a shoo-in.

Until then, I'd say look for someone who represents all of Virginia (to the extent that that is possible, being the varied state that it is). I don't know that any of the three Democrats currently running satisfy that completely. A shame, too -- there's a lot of talent to go around these days.

Deeds has lost the AG race to McDonnell so loosing the guberatorial race will not be to big of a shock for him
