what could have been...

Reading about Mark Warner's victory in the Virginia Senate race, I saw a photo of Warner, Governor Tim Kaine, and Senator Jim Webb watching the returns. Webb of course defeated George Allen in 2006 largely because Allen called that young volunteer of South Asian descent "macaca". Before his defeat, he had been seen as a possible front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination for 2008.

Probably just as well Allen lost to Webb. Can you imagine him calling Barack Obama "macaca" during a debate?
