No. Scratch that.
I'm wondering if anyone is advising gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe.
It would certainly seem not.
In this bastion of conservatism we call Southwest Virginia the incredibly unctuous Democrat that even most Democrats don't want to be around decides he's going to bring the least admired political figure in modern history with him here to win votes?
Someone needs to get a hold of this boy and tell him what Southwest Virginia is all about. Arlington it ain't. Character still counts for something here.
And bringing a lying, conniving rapist here is not acceptable.
Nor is it all that bright:
Clinton to join McAuliffe in Roanoke
By Michael Sluss, Roanoke Times
Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe will bring former President Clinton to Roanoke next week, the first time Clinton will campaign with his longtime friend and former fundraiser.
Clinton will appear at public events with McAuliffe on Monday in Roanoke and Richmond. McAuliffe's campaign will release additional details about the visits in the coming days.
McAuliffe, who lives in McLean, is one of three Democrats seeking the party's nomination for governor in a June 9 primary, competing with state Sen. Creigh Deeds of Bath County and former state Del. Brian Moran of Alexandria.
"We're thrilled to have President Clinton join Terry on the campaign trail," McAuliffe campaign manager Mike Henry said in a statement. [link]
So you know, it is this same campaign manager Mike Henry who, as deputy campaign manager for another candidate a year ago, helped Hillary Clinton win the Democratic nomination for the presidency and saw her sweep to victory in November.
With his kind of help, and with boneheaded moves like this - the despised Bill Clinton campaigning for votes in conservative Southwest Virginia!? - McAuliffe is assured of the same kind of success that Hillary achieved.
A word of advice: Find Plan B.
