If Ken Cuccinelli wants to behave like a pouting, tantrum-throwing toddler, I’ll portray him as one
Modern traditions hold that major-party candidates, after a long campaign, reach out to one another once it’s over, usually over the phone. One graciously concedes, one graciously accepts, and the campaign effectively comes to a formal end.
But to appreciate the bad blood in Virginia’s gubernatorial race, note that the modern tradition isbeing ignored.
Gov. Robert F. McDonnell (R) congratulated McAuliffe and pledged a “seamless and smooth” transition. As of late morning Wednesday, Cuccinelli had not called McAuliffe and had no plans to do so, according to two people close to the campaign.
Gov.-elect Terry McAuliffe (D)added while talking to reporters this afternoon, “I have not had the opportunity yet to speak to the attorney general.“
I believe small things like this tell you a lot about people…and what it says about Ken Cuccinelli is that deep down he’s an immature brat.
