Born at the Crest of the Empire

It was all about the candidates last night.

I'm not really buying this broad interpretation of the few election results last night. Creigh Deeds lost and McDonnell won because Deeds came across as a weak dead fish, and McDonnell came across as strong and comfortable in the media.

Corzine lost because he's an an popular, corrupt pig, and Hoffman lost in NY-23 because he knew nothing about his district and was unable to respond in simple interviews.

Change the people in any of these elections, replace Corzne with someone neutral or Hoffman with any normal person, and the results likely change.

Sorry, guys. These were kinda freak races. There's no great message here. I know that's a less thrilling storyline, but you know it's true.
