WASHINGTON — The Marines, in full dress uniform, perform their summer drills in silence, flipping their rifles in near-perfect precision in front of the Iwo Jima memorial, illuminated by the glow of sunset.
One man, the guest of honor, stands stock-straight at the center of the pageantry, Marines on both sides, watching as they pass.
Order. Precision. Tradition. Just across the Potomac River from his Senate office, this is Jim Webb's world.
The first-term senator from Virginia has built a life around a deep love for the military. His sons have followed him, with one serving in the Marines in Iraq.
"It's very personal to us," Webb would say later of that evening.
Webb, 62, has had an almost absurd number of careers since leaving the Marine Corps in the early 1970s. But there's one more role he could yet play: Barack Obama's saving grace.
It is widely speculated that Obama will need to choose a vice presidential nominee versed in national security matters, perhaps with a strong military background, to attempt to blunt the edge his opponent, John McCain, carries in those arenas.
Webb seems made-to-order for that, a character right out of one of his novels. His careers keep evolving. Lawyer. Defense analyst. Journalist. Pentagon bureaucrat. Novelist. Screenwriter. Emmy-winning filmmaker. Businessman. And now, politician.

I am happy that I am working in Obama's campaign! The following snippet is from today's NY TIMES (we need to make sure we donate a few bucks to the campaign!):
Obama is drawing up plans for extensive advertising and voter-turnout drives across the nation, hoping to capitalize on his expected fund-raising advantage over Senator John McCain to force Republicans to compete in states they have not had to defend in decades.
With his decision to give up public financing and the spending limits that go with it, Mr. Obama has added several seasoned hands to his advertising team, a harbinger of a multifaceted television campaign that people inside and outside Obama headquarters said would grow well beyond its already large presence in 18 states.
Future commercials could run on big national showcases like the Olympics in August and smaller cable networks like MTV and Black Entertainment Television that appeal to specific demographic and interest groups.
Mr. Obama is also dispatching paid staff members to all 50 states, an unusual move by the standards of modern presidential campaigns so often fought in just a contained group of contested territories.
His aides and advisers said they did not believe Obama necessarily has a serious chance of winning in many of the traditionally Republican states, but rather that he can at least draw Mr. McCain into spending time and money there while also swelling the rolls of Democratic voters and supporting other Democrats on the ballot.
His strategists are busily studying data from focus groups, magazine subscription lists and census studies. It is the beginning of an intensive door-to-door drive, using volunteers overseen by a growing staff of organizers, to reach voters using persuasive messages tailored to their individual interests through the mail, e-mail and word of mouth.
Now, free from the constraints of public financing, campaign and party officials have said that Mr. Obama’s budget for the rest of the year could be well above $300 million. But Mr. Obama’s fund-raising slowed abruptly in May, when the campaign raised $22 million, $10 million less than it had in April and an even sharper drop relative to his monthly performances earlier in the year. The decline was evidence that Mr. Obama might have to work hard to keep donations coming in at the record pace he has been setting.

Here's some good stuff about John McCain from Lonee Hamilton of: http://www.barackoblogger.com/
The Flipflop Express is great site that chronicles all of John McCain's flipflops. Check it out.Olbermann: "Mission Accomplished" in Iraq Oil War
The reason why we invaded Iraq has become clear. As Rachel Maddow states in the MSNBC clip at the link HERE, the United States (special interests of the US, anyway) needs to set up an oil colony.
We've been hoodwinked. (But we already knew that, right?)
