That won't be proved until the Right tries pulling its usual bullshit line about something trivial which 'proves' he's not a winner or a patriot. If Webb passes that test with a good two-syllable smack-down, he could be in with a chance. Otherwise he'll be Kerry'd - especially if he tries to be too thoughtful or measured.
What's bitterly disappointing about the Dems is how they always legitimise these trivial playground talking points by play defence against them.
Obama doesn't wear a flag pin, so for weeks afterwards dKos dissects and repeats the flag pin comment to 'prove' that Obama is really a patriot and the flag pin isn't an issue.
Really, it's not.
And so on. There are examples every few weeks, so you can bet another one will roll up soon.
What's ironic is that if the Dems went on the attack and savaged the bullshit records of the Right's so-called patriots by nailing how all they do is posture, yap, bark, flail around and only deliver impression management with no substance, they could destroy the credibility of the Republicans for a generation.
The voters are ready to hear it. And there are so many potential talking points in that angle, it would be huge fun to see them turned into an offensive weapon.
