  •  I like Webb, but it strikes me as telling that (0+ / 0-)

    his name has never really been floated seriously despite his obvious qualifications.

      and also thought of him, but I get the impression he has had it with the Washington swamp and just wanted to get out and do more writing. Hence his retirement from the Senate too early for me.

        and perhaps the worst kept secret is how much Webb turned out to hate being a Senator. I'm actually surprised this doesn't happen more often with military Senators--you get used to giving an order and having it done to being in a plodding, do-nothing body where any one a-hole can gum up the works at will.
