Would it be too early...

...to suggest Jim Webb as Hillary's running mate for 2016?

Think about it: an angry white male from a swing state with populist economic and non-interventionist foreign policy views. He'd be ideal!

While Jacob Heilbrunn calls Webb "The Real Threat to Hillary Clinton" today in the Times, I see the former senator from Virginia as the perfect complement to the presumed frontrunner for the Democratic nomination. 

Seriously, Webb is a maverick southerner of Scotch-Irish ancestry, law school graduate, author, Vietnam War hero and former secretary of the Navy in the Reagan administration who's already announced for 2016. Sign him up!

(Now if the two can only avoid pissing each other off in the upcoming primaries...)
