Um, reality check. If Kilgore wasn't keeping his distance, then Bush would have been all over Virginia in the last couple of weeks stumping for Kilgore on the campaign trail (like he has been with many other candidates for Governor and Congress). This event may say that the doors open at 5pm, but the President isn't even scheduled to be back from South America until well after 9pm: he may well miss even the later-night broadcast news. Meanwhile, even when aired, the story will be paired everywhere it goes with Kaine/Warner joined at the hip, and their events will be news all day that day, matched with the President's brief airport stopover or not.

In other words, whomever scheduled this rally made sure it was done at precisely the time when only the self-selected Bush-partisans attending would be most impacted by it, mostly shading it from Virginians in general.

Has Bush been on Kilgore's mail pieces?

In fact, I received a Kilgore mail piece today with Bush on it.

Kilgore is going to lose. President or no President, he's going to lose. At this point, he might as well go out with a bang.

This is a big party to make the volunteers feel better. To make matters worse, this means that 500 people will be to tired Tuesday morning to work the polls.

Yea, that'll help Kaine. Bush's negatives are so bad in NOVA that this should go a long way to seal Kilgore's fate on Nov 8.

My guess is that you are already ID'd as a Bush voter/donor/etc. General Republicans and unknown party people certainly aren't getting much Bush stuff.

Just a note from the field: turnout at Kilgore's GOTV rallies has been _abysmal_. Even with Sen. Warner and Allen in tow, the last two outdoor rally events today pulled out only around 100 people each (the rally on the Penninsula was barely 100 folks, and this is the final weekend of the campaign). Heck: 3 to 4 times that many people came out to see Kaine open his offices in the _dead of summer_, before anyone even started paying attention to the race. Almost that many people have come out to see Mark Warner and Kaine at breakfast cafe stops over the past week. This has got to be a big downer for the ticket. Kilgore's strategy of avoiding personal contact with all but the most carefully screened pro-Kilgore voters, as well as just not doing very many pulbic events at all, is not paying off.
