Predictions, Predictions

The Blue Dog (aka Nostradogus), makes his predictions on the race, and Chad is running a predictions contest (with prizes!).

I have no idea who will win. But I would pick Kilgore by the narrowest of margins...around half a percentage point...while Bolling and McDonnell, I think, will earn more comfortable wins (thanks in no small part to the efforts of conservatives...who are hereby reminded to get out and vote tomorrow).

However, I will predict that locally, Brad Marrs wins over Katherine Waddell, but with a bare majority (let's call it 50.7). Marrs will not carry the Richmond City portions of his district. He may even be trounced in those precincts. He will be forced to rely on Chesterfield County for his margin. If this result pans out, he may earn a very strong primary challenge in 2007, should he decide to run again.

"You know what the fellow said: In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they also produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love -- they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." -- Orson Welles, The Third Man

"Oh, so Mother Nature needs a favor? Well maybe she should have thought of that when she was besetting us with droughts and floods and poison monkeys. Nature started the fight for survival and now she wants to quit because she's losing. Well I say, hard cheese!" -- Montgomery Burns
