Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Furthermore, much as the evil presence of Cheney as V.P. has been, (in jest?), considered as providing insulation to Bush against impeachment or worse, so might Webb provide Obama with a buffer against the most ruthless of RWNs who might otherwise consider "executive action."  He would likely take the approach of "let justice prevail or let the heavens fall."  And in such a situation he would be seen as almost certain to command the loyalty of the uniformed services when push came to shove.
