Virginia was one part of the President's surprisingly strong electoral college win in his 2012 re-election. We look at Virginia and the fact that in three swing elections it seemed to go for the incumbent. anything too that or just trend-fishing? Should we look at this state differently since it's so easy for an incumbent in the White House to cross the Francis Scott Key Bridge and make an appearance, because many residents live so close to the President and indeed many work for him. In the course of it we discuss John Kennedy's not often discussed contribution to civil rights, and ponder if Virginia will follow its history of not being a swing state for very long.
