A profile in courage...

Photo shows Senator James Webb (D-Va.) preparing to respond to the State of the Union address on Tuesday night.

In his prepared text, he said the middle class is "losing its place at the table." He also commented that "the president took us into this war recklessly."

What a great speech he delivered. I hope Hillary was listening. A lot of people in the blogosphere are suggesting that Webb would be a good VP candidate for 2008.

In the meantime, our junior Senator from Massachusetts has decided that he will not be a candidate for President this time around. A sensible decision. I still believe that if he had not flip-flopped on the Iraq War issue he would have beaten Bush in 04.
