THE PLANK SEPTEMBER 13, 2007
...long live Warner!
Everyone is saying that this will be a tight race, and perhaps it will. But given Mark Warner's popularity in Virginia, the prevailing political winds in the state and the nation, and, yes, even the thousands of additional votes he'll undoubtedly get from confused folks who mistake him for his retiring namesake, I think the seat is his to lose. (Unless, that is, he opts for higher office.)
