It was not Obama that pulled Virginia over the line. The Democratic wave in 2008 demonstrated the extreme growth of NOVA which consists of young urban professionals, including many government workers. The young, upper-middle class educated demographic is obviously much more Democratic then the rest of the state, and the growth rates here compared to southwest Virginia have been pulling it away from GOP hands at an alarming rate. This obviously results in the state voting more like Maryland than the Carolinas. So unlike Obama's bumps in Louisiana and Mississippi, this state's movement is all trend based.
