The Democrats have done plenty of soul-searching and blog-posting about last week's loss. Blue Virginia goes all historical today about the impact of blogs on the process.
How about another angle to throw out?
Could the Republicans have won with Jeff Frederick as RPV chairman?
The struggle to replace him was the big story of late winter and early spring. It was supposed to show the cracks in the Republican Party that would allow Democrats better chances in 2009.
Did it end up making a difference? Or were the national conditions for Democrats so bad and Deeds' campaign so poor that the Republicans still would have won?
Discuss among yourselves.
