Virginia is now more important than ever to BBK. The Nations/BofA deal changes things a great deal because it changes the focus of future acquirers. The 1st Chicago - BankOne deal is a cause for relief for BBK -now they don't have to worry about getting bought by BankOne. But now what? Now what is a deal with Crestar or an Alabama Bank (not SouthTrust - JA hates SouthTrust!) My money is on Crestar - if Hugh McColl can do a merger of equals to accomplish a major coup, than John can!
