In Blogs, an Early, Passionate Turnout "The battle for the heart and soul of Virginia's Democratic Party -- and the Democratic nomination for the U.S. Senate -- is underway.
At least it is in the Democratic blogosphere, where passions are running high." (WaPo here)
We love this. We believe the blogosphere will be key in the election cycles going forward and that the DEMS especially will benefit from the passion and energy being generated by the blogs. This is one of many examples to come of how positive news - favorable straw poll results - makes its way into the liberal blogosphere and energizes the voters. The key will be can the liberal bloggers get people out to actually vote when necessary. Remember, that's what the GOP does best...convert the passion into votes.
