The pendulum has swung...

Bob Lewis, writing for the Associated Press, analyzes Virginia's Miller/Webb Democratic primary race. Interestingly, he seems more impressed with Webb’s potential to unseat Republican incumbent Sen. George Allen than Miller’s in, “Reagan's Navy Chief Seeks Va. Senate Seat.”

“‘...When I look at where this administration has taken its own party, I cannot help but think about the pendulum of history,’ Webb said. ‘The pendulum has swung, I think, as far as it can swing given the principles this party had once espoused.’ Webb says Allen is part of an arrogant Republican majority in Washington bent on repeating in Iraq the blunders that killed so many of his buddies in Vietnam a generation ago.”
