Senator Webb Shows How It's Done

One of the problems with Congress in the last six years has been the tendency by Republicans to rubber stamp the president's position. Neither Republicans nor Democrats should ever merely rubber stamp a president. Congress is a coequal branch of government and has a responsibility to the American people to discuss the issues and hold the administration accountable when the answers aren't acceptable. Hearings under Republicans became friendly games of soft ball rather than serious examinations of our nation's issues and needs. Take a look at Jim Webb's statements courtesy of Barbin Md on Daily Kos. Senator Webb isn't putting up with public relations kind of statements on serious issues.

Webb made a telling and important statement. He doesn't mince words.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Graham become McCain's No. 2 in 2008.

I sort of like Graham but his politics don't make any sense to me. Yes, if McCain doesn't pick Lieberman, Graham would certainly fit in with McCain.
