AOL was not doing well when Tim Kaine was Governor. Remember?

How has giving the MWAA the toll road benefited Loudoun County?

Allie, what's your point? The business decisions that led to AOL's decline occurred well before Tim Kaine was governor. The 2001 merger with Time Warner (five years earlier) is said to have led to a $200 Billion loss in market value. Maybe you should blame Senator George Allen who was in office from 2001-2007 during the heart of AOL's decline. Or perhaps the cause of AOL-Time Warner's decline had little to do with the politicians at the time and was rather due to a lack of foresight to the changes in internet communication and commerce, or maybe the difficulties of merging a subscription-based internet company with an "old media" empire during the rise of Google and all other manner of free internet media.

Not only was AOL not doing well, other Virginia corporations were struggling. And look what happened when he headed the DNC.
