Jim Webb’s Moment in the Letterman Spotlight

Our #WGDB blog pulled a Throwback Thursday by taking a look at ex-Sen. Jim Webb’s 2007 response to George W. Bush’s State of the Union .  

HOH had no desire to be left out of the equation, so we dug up the Virginia Democrat’s 2008 appearance on “The Late Show with David Letterman.”  

Our favorite part? It has to be about his Marine buddy from Vietnam who became his 2006 campaign driver and adviser, a guy who lost most of his arm in combat and had a tattoo inked that said “cut on dotted line.” Oh, and he drank at lunch. Priceless. More senators like this please!
