I know it's a few days old, but the Southern Political Report has an interesting piece about the rise and fall of the RPVA. Obviously, conservatism is alive and well in the Old Dominion, but I think this article points directly to the dangers of extremism in the pursuit of any ideology (sorry, Barry Goldwater). Democrats should take the lessons learned by the RPVA to heart and carefully continue to practice Mark Warner-style moderation in Virginia (and other potential purple states). After all, it's supposed to be a government for all people, not just those who completely embrace a right or left agenda.
