Caught a bit of the Senate race debate on NBC last night. Republican Senator George Allen (wears Cowbow boots!) came across as a very seasoned politician (despite his macaca slip) unlike his opponent, James Webb (wears Combat boots!) who seems to be banking primarily on his anti-war stance. The Senator on the other hand seems to swear by anything the Bush administration does. (Wonder how he would react when Jeb Bush announces his Presidential bid!). It is surprising that the polls show that the race is competitive despite the campaign styles, the cash reserves of the incumbent etc. Sounds like opposition to the war in Iraq is finally worth a few extra votes!
