Why should we be happy that Kaine won?

Even on abortion he is a waffler. He admits to being "personally opposed" to abortion but says he won't "oppose abortion law as it is" but also says we should work to "make abortion more and more rare". He is vehemently opposed to what the right has propaganda-named "partial birth abortion".
Kaine is a conservative in every sense of the word. Are we so desperate for victory that a conservative in Democrat clothes makes us happy? I'm afraid that for a few of the very red states this is the future of the Democrat Party. More and more conservatives running as Dems.
Let's face it, the conservatives keep winning and winning. Dems won in Wyoming and Colorado by claiming to be more conservative than their Reep opponents last cycle and the trend continues.
Thank God for Corzine, at least there is finally a win by a true liberal!!
