The self-styled "Old War Horse" is not seeking re-election in '08. Which is good, because his conduct of late would most likely lead to his defeat:
Weak on illegal alien immigration. Warner voted for the Senate "amnesty" bill, and voted again to resurrect it after it had died.
Weak on the War: Warner had a hare brained idea to withdraw (only partially!) troops (only a few!) from Iraq and Afghanistan. He likes to stick his finger in the wind.
Weak in responding to his constituents. Warner's office (I do not fantasize he actually reads my letters) has sent back only one response to several letters I have sent to him, on a range of various topics.
I can hear the trumpets of flatulence sounding a fanfare to honor his exit.
