This Is Who We're Stuck With...

Hampton Roads news reports on Tim Kaine's "transportation listening tour". His first meeting was held in Roanoke. The subsequent meeting will be held in Henrico County, Manassas and Bristol. Is the largest transportation block that needs fixing NOT Fairfax County, and Prince William? Governor-elect Kaine seems to already be heading in the wrong direction on transportation, by visiting Roanoke, when the people who got him elected up here ,are also the ones who need him most.

Can't disagree with this. Who here is surprised that Kaine is on the wrong road?

But he is visiting with a major cheerleader, the Roanoke Times.
Stopping by here first, and getting rave reviews, he will have no problem pushing through a tax plan at the other stops on the "listening tour".

well, if he went straight up to NoVA and starting promising money or "listening", then he would be accused of being NoVA's lap boy. He will hit Hampton Roads and NoVA later in the campaign. Everyone knows those two locations are where the dollars on transportation will be spent. He just has to be seen as looking out for everyone. After all, he needs more votes than just NoVA in the GA to get anything done. Look who he hired as Chief of Staff, Warner's guy. Give Kaine some credit for having a plan. We'll see if he can execute (a little death penalty humor there, he already executed Kilgore...).

Anon 8:42 -- Well, perhaps, but there is something to be said for dancing with the one who brung you, and without NoVA's Democrat vote, Kaine would be relegated to the oblivion he so richly deserves. We've already had one Democrat Governor (from NoVA, no less!) who fiddled while NoVA's transportation woes blossomed (please forgive the mixed metaphor).

On the other hand, it's nice to see that Kaine has finally expressed some interest in getting a transportation plan.
