I've been saying and writing that Jim Webb seems like the logical choice for Obama's Vice Presidential candidate. He has a military background, he's from the South, he even served in Reagan's cabinet. On the face of it he would seem to bring a lot to the ticket.
Well, maybe not so fast. Tim Noah has a piece in Slate today arguing that Webb would be a terrible choice for the job. He starts out with the fact that his prior sexist writings would likely alienate Clinton's supporters, even though he no longer supports the views he expressed, and goes on from there.
I encourage you to read it.
