Jim Webb is the senator from Virginia, and especially when compared to the past occupant and his racial terrorism, it’s a supreme improvement. That said, I was not personally as impressed with Sen. Webb’s performance in the Democratic Response as so many others seem to have been (The bar is so low for opposition party response speeches that someone not drooling is cause for celebration). And the talk about him being anything like a vice-presidential candidate is lunacy. Policy-wise I agree with a lot of what Jim Webb says and stands for, but from a performance point of view, Sen. Webb is… the senator from Virginia. Okay?
