This guy says that Senator Webb would be the best choice.
I'm not so sure I agree. Senator Webb is brand new to the Senate as of a year ago and despite his prior experience, he defeated George Allen by a very slim margin. I feel like we need Senator Webb in the Senate. Virginia is slowly turning blue, and Senator Webb is a big part of it.
The more I think about it, the more I believe Senator Obama needs to choose someone who is more liberal than he is. I hate to sound morbid, but he needs an insurance policy. Someone who makes the uber-loony wingnuts think twice about acting upon their Manchurian paranoia bullshit.
So if he can find a tough-talking populist anti-corporate liberal, he'll be better off. I'm actually thinking that it wouldn't be such a bad idea to pick John Edwards for the job. Sure he ran for the job four years ago, but so what?
