How about Mark Warner for Vice President?

Years ago when then former Governor and now Sen. Mark Warner was thinking about running for President, I was on-board with his campaign.  Indeed, most Virginia Democrats readily listed themselves as Warner for President Supporters.

75 years ago “the few” saved Britain from defeat

Back in 1986 I was a guest at a dear friend’s wedding and the reception was in a town called Chingford.
It’s a suburb of London.  And my wife and I were seated next to an older gentleman who told us, as we were all trying to make conversation, that during the war he occasionally had been directed to a small airfield not far away.

The Cyber Combat Academy helps our wounded warriors find a place in the new economy

There are some pretty grim statistics when it comes to wounded vets from our recent wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.  And they don’t make pleasant reading.  Economically, these men and women just aren’t doing well.  The unemployment rate for wounded and ill veterans is staggeringly high.  We just aren’t succeeding at helping integrate these young men and women back into the workforce.

Were our Founding Fathers a bunch of drunks?

Why I hate labels and why I keep using them

I hate labels.  Red state, blue state, conservative, liberal, moderate, tea partier, libertarian, and on and on.  They don’t mean all that much.  Not really, and when journalists are trying to sound sophisticated they go a step further mix them up a little.  Ron Paul is sometimes called a libertarian conservative and Hillary Clinton is currently trying on both the moderate and liberal labels hoping to find a good fit.
