Two opportunities to make Virginia Obama country!
More and more it is looking like this year's Democratic primary is going to be decided by a razor thin margin. This means that Virginia Democrats are going to be treated to something they have not had in years: a meaningful Virginia primary contest.
Time is short, but there are a couple of events before the February 12th primary that I want to call attention to. The first of these events is tomorrow, near Northern Virginia. On Monday, January 28th, Barack Obama will be in Washington, DC for a special event at American University.

Democratic Party of Virginia's Annual Jefferson-Jackson Dinner
The second event is still something of a rumor . . . there is a possibility that one or more of the candidates for the Democratic presidential nomination may appear at this year's Virginia Jefferson-Jackson Dinner. If you haven't already purchased a floor seat for the dinner (maybe you can't afford it) then there's another way to attend the dinner as a spectator. Here's the link for those interested in purchasing stadium-style seats (does not include dinner) for the Democratic Party of Virginia's Annual Jefferson-Jackson Dinner in Richmond on February 9, 2008.
The Democratic Party of Virginia has advertised the featured speaker(s) for the JJ dinner as being the top two candidates for the presidential nomination. Obama supporters are planning to show their support for Barack, even if there has been no speaker confirmation to date. Arrangements at the $100 "center of the arena" level are for Obama supporters to be grouped together.
