I don't see how anyone at the debate could look at Goode and think he should go back to Washington. He was dull, angry, and uninformed. Perriello was like a breath of fresh air, and he didn't just come out swinging at Republicans. He wants to fight for everyone of every party. What a concept.
Goode also waved around Warner's bank statement, which had nothing to do with anything except that he's desperate. Perriello was sharp as a tack, fearless, and it was easy to tell he is a man on a mission to help the average Joe. He has real ideas, while Good could just rant about anchor babies. Goode may be a nice guy, but he has lost my vote. He just doesn't have it anymore.

Mr. Walker, call me nieve, but isnt it just "normal politics" to bring in things that have nothing to do with a canidate?(i.e. John McCain's wife having many, many house...what does that have to do with McCain and the presidential race... or Sarah Palin having a child with Down Syndrome?) Only things that matter should be considered about a canidate.(i.e., service to America, political servitude, and morals.) Goode, as well as McCain, has my vote on Nov. 4.

Young republican do you actually like politics as normal? Do you actually like the slurs and slander of candidates? I just don't understand what you meant by "normal politics" being a non-issue. Isn't this a lame excuse for supporting rotten politics. I want a candidate that doesn't sink to that level. I care about the issues too and that's why I find it so odd that you don't mention once what you like about Goode. I like Tom Perriello because he has a real ideas on how to end our dependence on foreign oil. Drill here, drill now is of the same mentality that if we keep throwing water on a oil fire it will eventually go out. No one acknowledges the fact that we simply don't have enough oil in our country and neighboring Canada to support or thirst for oil and the only solution is to find a real alternative fuel. Even T. Boon Pickens supports this mantra and he paid for the swift boat adverts against Kerry in '04.

I could go further into Goode's troubles but I don't have enough time to list it all until the polls open.:)
