I thought Webb’s Dem response was good, though he didn’t really touch on the issues close to our green hearts. It was a strong populist and anti-Iraq-War speech, appropriately gruff and strong.

I liked the last bit. If Bush does the right things, they’ll join him. If not, “we’ll be showing him the way.” Vaguely threatening. Sweet.
