Obama and Kaine speak
The Fix reports President Barack Obama and Democratic National Committee Chairman Tim Kaine spoke via phone today, according to two sources familiar with the conversation.
Kaine, former Virginia governor, is being encouraged by national and state Democrats to run for the Senate seat held by Democrat Jim Webb.
There was no read out of the conversation, although it's hard to imagine Kaine's consideration of a Virginia Senate candidacy didn't come up, according to the Fix.
