Video: Mike Signer, Brian Moran, Terry McAuliffe Speak at Arlington Young...

Last night at the Arlington Young Democrats meeting in Ballston, three former statewide candidates for the Democrats - Mike Signer, Brian Moran and Terry McAuliffe - gave GOTV ("get out the vote") pep talks less than 2 weeks before mid-term elections (and prior to the dozens of AYD's taking to the phone banks). The appearance together by Signer, Moran and McAuliffe also was noteworthy in that all three had been mentioned as contenders to succeed Dick Cranwell as chair of the Democratic Party of Virginia. With the quasi-"unity rally" last night, it now appears that Mark Warner's pick for DPVA chair, Brian Moran, will not be seriously opposed for the position. We'll see.  Anyway, here's some video from last night, in order of appearance.  Introducing the speakers is AYDs president Gordon Simonett.  Enjoy.

P.S. I'd also say that it's looking more likely Brian Moran will not be a statewide candidate in 2013.

Mike Signer: Lesson For Virginia Republicans is “you live by the...

See Mike Signer's op-ed in the Richmond Times-Dispatch for more. Here's a short excerpt:
...In a few short weeks, Gov. McDonnell has abandoned his hallmark restraint and instead whipsawed all over the political map, delivering incoherent and incompetent governance in the process. Both Democrats and Republicans would do well to learn from McDonnell's disastrous first 100 days.

For Republicans, the lesson is that when you live by the sword, you die by the sword. At many Republican campaign rallies last fall, countless supporters waved the "Don't Tread on Me" flag; McDonnell shouldn't be surprised when he finds himself trod upon. For Democrats fearful of a midterm nightmare this fall, it's instead their best opportunity in years to be seen by voters, once again, as the party that delivers results rather than rhetoric.
