The Virginia Ballot

Virginia holds its primary relatively early (Feb 10) but isn't getting much attention in the national media.

The deadline for getting on the ballot is December 1 (12 days away).

So far, just Clark and Dean have done it:

Clark, Dean qualify for Virginia primary ballot
Clark was the first to file the required 10,000 signatures with the Virginia State Board of Elections.

Six hours later, Dean's campaign rushed nearly 20,000 signatures to the state board, which stayed open late to accommodate it.

...State law requires presidential candidates to file at least 10,000 signatures of registered voters, including at least 400 from each of the 11 congressional districts.
That's a pretty high bar. Any bets as to how many candidates will be on the ballot in the end? I'll say four (guessing Edwards and Kerry).
