Dave: The Washington Post’s account suggests the McDonnell-Deeds attorney-general recount in Virginia lacked any of the Florida 2000 recount’s acrimony. Sure, the stakes were smaller.

McDonnell’s daughter, Jeanine, 24, a second lieutenant in the Army, called him on his cell phone about 2 p.m. in Richmond, 10 p.m. in Baghdad, to ask whether he had the results yet. The day before the recount, McDonnell said, she had gone out with her unit in a convoy and been shot at.
