You wanna know why? Many reasons....here's another one that I added to my list today. This is what he said about Obama's problems with Appalachia (which the MSM likes to describe as his "problem with the working-class" although it's really more of a geographical/cultural problem, and not a broader class problem). Just look at John King's maps.
"We shouldn't be surprised at the way they are voting right now," said Webb in an interview with MSNBC. "This is the result of how affirmative action, which was basically a justifiable concept when it applied to African-Americans, expanded to every single ethnic group in America that was not white. And these were the people who had not received benefits and were not getting anything out of it."They've been forgotten year after year after year. Bitter, maybe? That problem being said, he still thinks Obama can win.
"The key thing," said Webb, is "if this cultural group could get at the same table with black America, you could really change American politics because they have so much in common in terms of what they need out of government."The rest of the list would include things like: his bi-partisan past, his strong foreign policy cred, his ability to stand up to McCain like nobody's-business (does "He's so full of it" ring a bell?), etc. Good choice all around.
Plus, he's from southwest Virginia. He's my kind of peeps.
