If I was Obama I would go for Webb as well. Seems like a top notch guy who could help with the white male votes. Ex veteran as well which could really help counter McCain.

You are correct. As for Virginia, observers have been shocked how much and how fast it has swung toward the Democrats. A deep red state for the last 40 some yrs, no signs of that changing in 2004. 2005 Governors race was one thing, Kaine won largely on the popularity of Warner. However, no one thought Webb had any serious shot at the Senate against George Allen. The suburbs around DC are expanding very quickly, lots of high tech jobs, new Democratic voters looking for good roads, good schools, good jobs, etc. The rural blue collars are no longer a lock for the GOP, many of those voters like Warner, Kaine, and Webb as they are moderate guys who speak to them as opposed to writing them off and talking down to them. The more the Democrats show authentic business/faithful/military types like Warner, Kaine and Webb, the more the phonys like Allen get exposed for who they are. Same holds true for Virginia as it does for Ohio, Florida, Missouri, W VA, Arizona, Nevada, Colorado, all states Democrats can win in if they are smart. BIG IF, but the recent evidence is good.
