I don't agree about Allen being unelectable. He lost by a fairly close margin against Webb, who was running as a moderately pro-gun, anti-war Democrat, in a year when Republicans and Iraq were extremely unpopular. If the Dims run a left-wing lib (and he avoids gaffes), Allen could very well excite much more support than that candidate. Let's not count him out quite yet, and if possible, let's not settle for another anti-gun RINO like John Warner has been for so long. We need a strong pro-2A Senator in Warner's current seat.
