Here in Virginia, the choice for replacement of retiring Senator John Warner's seat is Mark Warner (D) who supports the bailout and would have voted for it and every other bailout coming...and then the is Jim Gilmore (R) who would have voted against the bailout and future bailouts. Guess who is getting the seat? Right, liberal Mark Warner...who wants guns taken away, Christians silenced and home-schooling banned.
In my district [VA 5th] is Representative Virgil Goode [incumbent] who was one who stayed in the House when the lights went out and the cameras went out to try and force an energy (drilling) up or down vote. He allso voted twise against the bailout bill. Well, his opponent Tom Perr-i-ello (D) is gaining fast on Rep. Goode and may well defeat him. Virgil Goode stood his guns, but in this climate, that don't count for nothing. Tom Perr-i-ello is the 'not-incumbent' and a 'change'. It doesn't matter that he will be a Pelosi/Frank lap dog and vote completely liberal.
Perhaps, this will all turn out to be a 'good think' as Martha Stewart would say.

Yes, but the way it SHOULD work is that ALL—including Pelosi and Frank will be packing their bags and leaving town.
