President Bush said something or other about energy and health care and about not failing in Iraq (I mean, any more than we’ve already failed there,) but the real speech last night was given by Sen. Jim Webb (D-VA). This was probably the best Democratic response I’ve ever seen. If Webb’s Senate tenure wasn’t only a few weeks long, people would be whispering about a Presidential run.
Twenty years ago, this was the type of standup guy who would have proudly called himself a Republican. In fact, he did.
