father to so many styles should be handin' out cigars:
Newness from your boy over at the American Prospect online (now under new management!) about Jim Webb:
There is a lot of speculation that Virginia Senator Jim Webb would make an appealing vice presidential nominee for the Democrats. Some of it emanates from this magazine. It's not hard to see why. Webb is a tough-as-nails Marine veteran of Vietnam who served as a Navy secretary under Ronald Reagan, a vociferous enemy of the Iraq war and an extremely improbable progressive. He's also from the capitol of the Old Confederacy as its 11 electoral votes trend Democratic. What's more, if the nominee is Barack Obama, having a war veteran who also writes paeans to the Scots-Irish cultural tradition round out the ticket creates a juggernaut not seen since Spider-Man joined the New Avengers.I'm pretty pleased at myself over that Spider-Man reference.
