    McAuliffe has been in the public eye ever since raising boatloads of campaign cash for Bill Clinton — much of which probably came from the FIRE sector, which tells you where his loyalties will probably lie.  His career as a pundit was a succession of absolutely cringe-worthy moments, and belies an embarrassing lack of political skill.

    You can predict someone's future actions based on their words, or based on their past actions.  The latter is almost always a more reliable predictor.  And in McAuliffe's case, not the least bit flattering.  

    My feeling is, he only won because his opponent was so vulnerable and so far to the right.  And even then, the margin was tight.  A real Democrat would have cleaned the floor with Cuccinelli.  

    Shirley Chisholm was right. Our Republic is in deep trouble.
