We're Gonna Like These Guys

James Webb and Jon Tester were on Meet the Press on Sunday and boy, were they great.  MSNBC has several clips of one or both of them responding to Russert's questions and also has the entire show.

Webb talked about the need for diplomatic rather than military actions as a way to get us out of Iraq, about economic fairness as his primary focus in his service in the Senate, and about how he sees himself as being similar to former NY Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan, someone who brings the intellectual world to bear on his political ideas and actions. 

Tester, who was on from his kitchen in Big Sandy, MT, talked about his focus on doing what's right for the middle class, on the economic situation facing folks in Montana, and about the need for transparency in government. 

Oh, did we get lucky.

I supported Tester, but I am really excited about Webb, who is very articulate. He is absolutely progressive and an advocate for the middle class. Webb thinks class warfare agasinst the middle and lower classes is the number one issue to be addressed, and has committed to making this one of his top priorities.
