The straw that broke the camel's back?

Senate Democratic candidate Harris Miller apparently lost a straw poll to James Webb (58-42%) at Gerry Connelly's St. Patrick's Day event.

The question is this the straw that breaks the camel's back? Apperently, NOVA Democrat, Virginia Centrist, Not Larry Sabato, and of course Raising Kaine think so. Perservando seems to be good at photoshop. But this isn't the end of the campaign.

People who don't read blogs are still going to vote in the primary. Work still needs to be done. If you're a Webb supporter, congrats you won a straw poll. Keep working to get your man elected. If you're Miller, take this in stride and continue to working the voters on a one-on-one basis.

Finally, Miller and Webb should not turn the guns on each other. They should make positive assertions about what they want to do and why they are better than George Allen...he's the real enemy this year.
