No, no, no! Richmond is never Northeastern. Perish the thought.

In Richmond, you've got that pesky old James River to deal with.

Hmmm, another thought here . . . I lived in Richmond as a young child. I have fond memories of Richmond. Pleeeeease don't do to Richmond what they have done to Washington, D.C.
I meant the Potomac as a barrier in terms of roads. The James is not as wide but as others have alluded, when all is said and done, it may not make a difference in terms of traffic congestion anyways. It was just a light aside.

I am offended, as a citizen of a state invade by treasonous rebels who were too lazy to work their own land, that some person would have the audacity to suggest Richmond as the capital of the USA on Lincoln's 200th Birthday.

Uh, no. I was to Richmond recently, and I thought it looked like a pretty good city (some good parts, some bad parts, just like most cities that aren't giant suburbs) and came away with a generally positive impression, but there's no way a city like Richmond should be a national capital at this point - it's too small. Besides, as you may have heard, the Confederacy lost that war that happened ALMOST 150 YEARS AGO.
