Not a Politician
|But that's one of the things we like about Jim Webb, right?|
The Washington Post has a story up that details Jim Webb's reluctance to use both his military service in Vietnam and his son's service in Iraq as political tools to help him get more votes.
Now, while I would like to see every advantage pressed in this race, you have to respect that.
God forbid we elect someone who doesn't bring their personal life into a race. Jim Webb is running on issues, competence, and character. Those are strengths. We need to remove one stuffed-shirt, empty-headed, unaccomplished politician (I'm talking about Allen if this is too subtle for you) and replace him with a highly competent, independent citizen-legislator - what our government is supposed to be composed of.
Don't we have too many politicians who are afraid of doing the right thing in DC already? Don't we have too many Senators who are directed by their ambition for the Presidency? (Virginia certainly has one too many of these.)
Jim Webb won't legislate that way. He is a scholar and he will study the issues and make the best decision for Virginia and this country.
George Allen only makes the best decisions for his party and himself.
