OK, I feel like I have to weigh in here. I'm from the Midwest, but have lived in the South and now, D.C. No, D.C. is not a "sleepy Southern city", the District votes 90%-92% democratic. Having said that, I lived in the Northern Virginia suburbs, and got to know Virginia fairly well. I think I saw one blogger who correctly pointed out that the FIRST English settlement was in Virginia, not Plymouth. In fact when the Mayflower hit the big rock, there were 11, yes ELEVEN settlements in Va. In case you missed it, Jefferson and Washington were both Virginians. Yes, , Southerners. I'm an active liberal, but please, get your history right.
