Webb of Fresh Air

Really enjoyed this Fresh Air Podcast on Jim Webb. He's the senator from Virginia who barely beat an incumbent Republican Senator in 06'. It was a really nasty campaign and a few racial slurs by his opponent helped turn the race in Webb's favor . He's a measured person who clearly loves the U.S., respects serving in the Military, wants to see the troops taken care of and I really liked his views on the big picture. He describes himself as a Reagan Democrat, very interesting.

Another reason to check it out is because there are rumors that he is in the hunt for the Democratic Vice President nomination.
