Chances are, I won’t agree with Webb on a great number of issues. (The Tenth Amendment, Jim? Really?) Chances are, I might not even vote for him. But, as is the case with Bernie Sanders, to dismiss Webb now, and thereby dismiss the issues on which he would run, is to spavin the intellectual life of the presidential campaign, and presidential campaigns have a pretty spavined intellectual life in the first place. If Jim Webb runs, the country will be better off for the campaign it wil have. Dammit, that’s enough for now.
