All eyes on Virginia election today, from London to Leesburg

For you hardcore political junkies, we know, election day rocks. If you can't get enough analysis, spin or just plain news, there's plenty of discussion on the web about the Virginia governor's race and the national implications this off-year contest could have. The race is on CNN's top 10 list of contests to watch today.

FiveThirtyEight, which specializes in analyzing polling data, offers this election overview as well as some great reader discussion.

For a sense of how the race is playing overseas, check out this take out from the Times of London.

Locally, the Prince William County-based blog Black Velvet Bruce Li offers this video from Robert McDonnell's final campaign rally.

For those who lean left, courtesy of Talking Points Memo, is a video of Creigh Deeds final campaign rally featuring a song by the Black Eyed Peas.

Blogger Zennie62 offers his take saying folks shouldn't blame Obama if the Democrats lose the governor's mansion in Virginia. They should blame Deeds.

Time Magazine's Swampland blog says if Robert McDonnell wins the Virginia statehouse, other Republicans are likely to want to borrow from his campaign playbook.
