Amazing the spin Terry McAuliffe is getting for his "left my infant and wife in the car to fundraise" story.
In the end, however, what may save McAuliffe is the same thing that saved Mark Sanford this week in the South Carolina special House election. Women—and men for that matter—didn’t like what Sanford did to his wife, his kids, or his state. But their conservative political principles prevailed, just as Virginia’s increasingly moderate-to-liberal tilt could help McAuliffe. Even if he can’t overcome his image as a manic husband out of the Mad Men era.
If T-Mac is better than Sanford, you have to remember that Cuccinelli is much, much better than the comedian's sister.
