Webb Named One of Most Influential People

Anita Kumar

Esquire magazine named Sen. Jim Webb (D-Va.) one of the "75 Most Influential People of the 21st Century" in its 75th anniversary edition.

The reason given? "Because the Senate has never seen anything like him."

The eclectic list include David Petraeus, commander of U.S. forces in Iraq, baseball player Alex Rodriguez and the co-founders of Google, Larry Page and Sergey Brin. It includes other Democrats, including Al Gore and Hillary Clinton, and Republicans, including Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal.

Jeesh! We're not even eight years into the Century.

"Because the Senate has never seen anything like him." - The Senate has probably seen a lot like Senator Webb over the past 219 years, even if we haven't. And, he's only been a Senator since January 2007.

Jim Webb has been more notable for acting normal and civil over the past 20 months, than for being the loose canon with a volcanic temper that his opponents claimed he would be.

See me in about 42 years, and we can begin to make some judgments on this.

A waste of ink and paper by Esquire.
