Remember in 2001 when Dems won the VA Gov and NJ Gov races a few weeks after 9/11 and then Democrats went on to win legislative and electoral battles in 2002-2004? Me neither.

Point is, you can overlearn lessons from off-year elections. This year, Obama voters stayed home in VA. What does it mean? I leave that for other pundits to read too much into.

I'm with you Dave--I just don't read much into these elections. The only thing interesting to me is the Republicans' continued path to the far right and pushing out moderates. Do they think they can win with that small of a base?
