Kaine, Allen Square Off in Debate

Anita Kumar

Gov. Timothy M. Kaine (D) and former governor and senator George Allen (R) will represent the two presidential candidates in a debate about energy and the environment tomorrow morning in Northern Virginia.

Kaine, who was on the short list for vice president, and Allen have been filling in as surrogates for Sens. Barack Obama and John McCain regularly in recent months.

The debate, sponsored by the Dulles Regional Chamber of Commerce, will be held at the Washington Dulles Airport Marriott. The debate begins at 8 a.m. and will be moderated by Norah O'Donnell, MSNBC chief Washington correspondent.

"Energy and the environment are going to be huge issues facing the next president," said Peter Ryus, chairman of the chamber's environmental committee. "Virginia is an important setting for this debate because of its swing electoral votes, its demographics and its strategic proximity to Washington."

Quoting Ronald Reagan, he added, “I haven’t left the Republican Party. It left me.”

True Republicans should rise-up and reclaiming our party back from neo-cons and incompetent closet racists that hijacked it. Republicans need to go back to our roots and shed off the leaches.


As the Conservatives betrayed my trust, I am voting for change and my country first TRULY—OBAMA/BIDEN 08!


You know the GOP is in trouble for discredited George “Macaca” Allen to represent it!!

So Macaca boy is going to represent the Republican candidate, is this the best we can trot out to support Mr. McCain. I already knew we were hosed when he selected Palin, but this is just the icing on the cake
