All in all, this is generally a good article about Sen. Jim Webb (D-VA) as it covers his ascension through the Democratic party and his prominent role in delivering the Dem response to the SOTU. I do, however, have a problem with this part of the article:
Democrats owe their newfound control of the Senate to Webb's slim and improbable victory over former Virginia Sen. George Allen (R). Webb -- a Vietnam war hero turned antiwar zealot -- also embodies his party's central message: a determination to oppose the Iraq war while still supporting the troops who are there.
A zealot? Webb shares the opinion of, roughly, 70% of the American people. So, according to the Post's logic- this country is filled with anti-war zealots.

What does it make the escalation dead-enders like Joe Lieberman (I-Himself) and George Bush?
