Wilder to Back Kaine

After dancing with all three gubernatorial candidates, Richmond Mayor Doug Wilder will endorse Tim Kaine today.

It would have been earth-shattering news if Wilder had backed Kilgore or that Other Candidate. But this will have some affect, to be sure. The only thing I wonder about is the timing. If Wilder had come out early for Kaine, his support might have made an even bigger difference in the race. In delaying so long, does that diminish the endorsement, or does it help push Kaine over the top in Central Virginia?

"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
