Two definitions of the word intelligence as found in Webster’s dictionary are: 1) the ability to learn or understand or the skilled use of reason and 2) information concerning an enemy or possible enemy, also an agency engaged in obtaining such information. 

Both definitions speak to me about Sen. Mark Warner and his service to his Virginia constituents and our country. The first definition seems fitting given his known track record in the Senate as a moderate. The second is his leadership position as vice chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, a topic unfamiliar to many.
