Credit where credit's due, I bitched and moaned about Democrats constantly wearing the Frasier Crane mask. Webb brings it old school. Strong narrative, two and only two points, lots of emotional connection with the audience in order to fix those two points in their minds. It's like watching Yastrzemski hit.
And yeah, sure he's a "conservative" progressive. The man's practically wearing a "No War But Class War!" armband.
Dibs on coining "Webb-heads" as the moniker for the inevitable "Draft Webb" members, for those pushing for a VP slot in 2008 or his run in 2012. Hmm, I wonder if I can start making t-shirts now ...
(EDIT: To clarify, I don't actually support Webb in a run at this time or even 2012. I'm a big believer in "This is my rifle", and having Senators and Congressmen who stay Senators and Congressmen form part of the ideological fusillade is vitally important. A man with these priorities is desperately needed in the Senate, and I hope he enjoys a long career there.)
