Happy days in North Carolina

Bev Perdue has become the first female governor of North Carolina.

I'd like to be happy that a woman has broken the glass ceiling, but she's a Democrat and two of her fundraisers had to resign over ethics violations.

So how on earth did she get elected?

>>Perdue ran on a platform of offering free community college tuition to all students and providing health insurance to an estimated 300,000 uninsured children, largely through government-subsidized premiums.

(And of course, "government-subsidized" means tax-payer subsidized, which means "more taxes for the middle class."
