    Whoa, this is a game changer. This presents a prime opportunity for the GOP to pick up another seat in the Senate. While it looked like in 2008 Virginia was turning blue, it swung wildly back to the GOP last year.

    Yep.

    I heard that on the news this afternoon.

    Webb only served one term. I guess the having wasn't nearly as great as the wanting.

    As you say. An opportunity for the GOP in 2012.

    How is serving the full term a "quitter"?

    You called him a "rat". I bet that "rat" has done much more for this country than you have, and than you ever will.

    Of course it's an expression, but it doesn't mean you didn't call him a rat. But however you want to dodge calling an American hero (whether you agree with his political views or not), a "rat". Way to show a lot of class and respect. :clap2:
