This guy just keeps amazing me (NySun):
Senator Obama lost another potential running mate yesterday when Senator Webb of Virginia took himself out of contention for the vice presidency. Mr. Webb, a freshman lawmaker elected less than two years ago, issued a statement yesterday in which he ruled out a spot on the Obama ticket. “Last week I communicated to Senator Obama and his presidential campaign my firm intention to remain in the United States Senate, where I believe I am best equipped to serve the people of Virginia and this country,” he said in a statement. “Under no circumstances will I be a candidate for vice president.”
The Senate is the best place for Webb, who has been true to his word and fought courageously for his constituents. The Senate is a powerful place to be for someone not afraid to speak his or her mind.
