Webb As Veep Material

Mike Tomasky has kicked off the Webb-for-Veep talk. I think that sort of talk is only going to get louder, especially when you think about the kind of veep Hillary or Obama would be looking for to, uh, broaden the Democratic ticket's appeal. A white guy--much less a proud Scots-Irish white guy, much less a (formerly?) chauvinistic Scots-Irish white guy--would seem to be a perfect fit. You have to suspect Webb personally favors Edwards and his populist message, but if he's a careerist, he's secretly pulling for the other two top-tier Democratic candidates.
