virginia's other warner

Virginia GOP Senator John Warner is still deciding whether to run for re-election in 2008. As Republicans go, he isn't so bad. I still admire him for his opposition to Oliver North when Ollie was running for the GOP Senate nomination back in the 1990s. Going along with Ollie, who like him or not had high name recognition, would have been easy, but Warner opposed him largely on the grounds that he's a lying sack of shit.

Warner's a bit conservative, true, but in a relatively reasonable way. My main problem with him is the company he keeps in the Senate -- Lott, Santorum (not for much longer!), and company.
