Virginia’s next governor will be a fast talker

 debate2No disrespect intended, but the first impression from the gubernatorial debate today is that both Bob McDonnell and Creigh Deeds are a couple of motormouths.

The debate format — like most — offers strictly-timed windows for comments from the candidates.  The ticking clock, combined with first-debate nerves, seems to drive the candidates to rattle off their programs and slogans at a rate that’s almost impossible to digest.

Maybe they both need to take deep breaths and slow down a bit.  November is three months away.
