Is Terry McAuliffe a candidate or a spoiler?

Terry McAuliffe has thrown his hat into the ring for the Democratic nomination for next year's governor's race, but is he a serious candidate or a spoiler meant to break the perceived deadlock between Creigh Deeds and Brian Moran?  Is McAuliffe "in it to win it," or will he drop out once his target (is it Deeds or Moran?) realizes the writing is on the wall and drops out?
Our "quiet season" lasted less than six days after this year's election.  Game on!

Hi Ric Dem

My 'ol buddy Belle Rose @ Coarse Cracked Corn says it best for folks in the SV...

" I say, "thanks but no thanks, Terry." You may live in Virginia but you aren't really a Virginian. Creigh and Brian are well steeped in everything Virginia.... issues, policy, facts, and figures. You, Terry, are clueless. I've heard you speak and it was truly inspiring... but you are not the right guy, right now, for Governor.
Terry, take your tour. Virginia is a beautiful state. Have fun. Then withdraw and let Virginia Democrats nominate a candidate who can continue the tradition of a well-managed state government."
