I Voted for This Guy!

As a resident of the Commonwealth of Virginia, I had the pleasure of casting a vote for Jim Webb.
The Senator-elect is already making news as a maverick. Check out this Washington Post article about the feathers Webb is already starting to ruffle.
The best part of the article is the anecdote about a reception President Bush held for incoming members of Congress. Jim Webb heavily criticized Bush throughout the campaign, so at the reception, Webb tried to avoid Bush. Bush eventually tracked him down and the two engaged in the following conversation:
Hmmmmm......Webb is a Vietnam vet while Bush used his family name to stay out of the war. Webb's son is serving in Baghdad while Bush's daughter vacations in Buenos Aires. Who would you rather have guide our war policies?
