Winners and Losers: July 7, 2008

Compiled by Chris Graham

WINNER: Tim Kaine for VP?

The Last Virginian Standing in the Democratic Party VP race is the one that I found most logical from the get-go.

Barack Obama could use a Southern governor to balance his ticket. And remember, Kaine was on the Obama train early on, early enough, as Obama noted in a visit to Northern Virginia a few weeks ago, to have gotten Obama’s attention.

WINNER: AFP featured in slideshow on Huffington Post

It’s a small mention, sure, but hey, having our home office in the 16th picture in a slideshow featured in a post highlighting the efforts of local Democratic Party activists isn’t soemthing to sneeze at.

(Thanks to Riley Murray for the picture and the interview.)


TODAY’S HOT OR NOT: What’s up with the Starbucks news from last week?

Still waiting to hear back from Starbucks about the announcement that it’s going to be closing 600 stores.

Are our Starbucks here in Staunton and Waynesboro going to be affected? Inquiring minds want to know.
