Reading the news today is giving me the happy feeling that Bush's house of cards is about to collapse.

Ex-naval head seeks to be Democratic nominee for Senate

Feb 8, 2006

Former Navy Secretary James H. Webb Jr. said yesterday that he will file papers this week to seek the Democratic nomination to run for the U.S. Senate this year.

Webb, who lives in Arlington County, would join Harris N. Miller, a Fairfax County computer executive, in seeking the party's nomination.

The nominee will oppose U.S. Sen. George Allen, a Republican who is seeking a second six-year term in the Senate. Allen is a strong favorite.

Webb, who was secretary of the Navy under Republican President Ronald Reagan, resigned in protest of cutbacks in the Navy fleet. He has been a strong critic of the war in Iraq, saying that the Bush administration has never developed an exit strategy.

Webb is a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy and served in the Marines in the Vietnam War.

That is one more election this year that is going to be a referendum on Bush . The more the better.

Allen must feel like he just got kicked in the balls.
If by "balls" you mean, "the tidewater region" I agree 100%.
From the same article, referring to Webb and Miller:

"Both men will need to make themselves known to Virginians," said Kevin Griffis, a spokesman for the Democratic Party of Virginia."

Yeah, I'm sure Allen and his 70% approval ratings are sweating. Sure. No need to spin this one.

But hey, I'd love to see Allen only win by 3-5 points. That'd end his White House ambitions, which would be great.
"Both men will need to make themselves known to Virginians,"

You mean to tell me that all of Virginia is not sitting in front of a computer screen, refreshing politcal blogs every two minutes?

They don't know what they are missing.
