Virginia News Headlines: Thursday Morning

by: lowkell

Thu Nov 08, 2012 at 06:52:51 AM EST

Here are a few Virginia (and national) news headlines, political and otherwise, for Thursday, November 8.

*Barack Obama: celebration time - then straight back to work for the president
*Romney wraps up amid questions about campaign
*Republican Reckoning Begins After Revealing Defeat (Grab some popcorn, this should be fun!)
*Great moments in polling and punditry: 2012 election edition (Among other things, I will NEVER care about another poll by Suffolk University after its polling director said they'd already painted Virginia and Florida "red" a little less than a month from the election. Totally unprofessional, also totally wrong! To quote C-Lo, "forget you!" And Rasmussen? Well, let's just say nobody should have taken them seriously BEFORE this election, and they certainly shouldn't take them seriously AFTER this election. Total hacks.)
*Historic showing by Latinos helped propel Obama to win
*Obama again dominated Virginia population centers

*Va. to use federal health exchange option - for now
*Tim Kaine plans to join "Common Ground Caucus" in Senate
*Editorial: Choosing moderation over extremism ("In electing Tim Kaine to the U.S. Senate, Virginia voters favored collaboration over obstruction.")
*Mark Warner for governor? It could happen ("Mark Warner appears to be giving serious thought to a run for governor in 2013, according to multiple sources.")
*Kaine urges Warner to stay in the Senate
*Where does Cuccinelli fit in a blue Va.?
*Va. measure may affect building plans
*George Allen's chances in politics again? The answer is blurry.
*Will Democrats ever again set foot west of Radford?
*Jeff's Notes: Winners and losers
*Kaine: Virginia's Still Purple ("McDonnell congratulates Kaine and Obama, says GOP must look like a 'fun team to join'")
*Va. Gov. McDonnell says GOP must broaden its base (Ya think?)
*Martin O'Malley bests Bob McDonnell when it counts
*Governor Who Supported Mandatory Ultrasounds Says GOP Did Poorly in Getting Women's Votes (Who could have ever predicted THAT?!? LOL)
*Kaine already calling on Congress to avoid 'fiscal cliff'
*Reeling conservatives face 'recalibration' at their core
*Finding meaning and moving on
*Voter turnout wasn't unprecedented, so what was to blame for delays? (Thank you voter ID law!)
*Mix of factors led to long voting lines in Virginia
