Suddenly yesterday it became news that President Bush and Senator Elect Webb had a run-in of sorts a few weeks ago at a White House reception for newly elected solons. It seems Webb took exception to the president’s request that he answer the question he’d asked him. According to the Hill‘s report, based on what it learned from someone who overheard the exchange between the two men, “Webb confessed that he was so angered … that he was tempted to slug the commander-in-chief…” Shouldn’t he be receiving a visit from the Secret Service about now?

Meanwhile, the Washington Post‘s account protects Webb from such incriminating detail, though it does draw attention to a different bit of gaucheness on Webb’s part: at the reception Webb sought to avoid Bush and “declined to stand in a presidential receiving line or have his picture taken with [the president]…”

“I’m not particularly interested in having a picture of me and George W. Bush on my wall,” Webb told the Post.
