Never be afraid to stand with the minority when the minority is right, for the minority which is right will one day be the majority. - William Jennings Bryan

Alright, Ya Got Me

This morning, while sitting in my Information Technologies class (not doing my work, by the way...), I logged on to RaisingKaine, and saw this post concerning James Webb.

Now, as background information, I've been very outspoken that we need to get a proven votegetter to run against George Allen in 2006 (Baliles, Deeds, Byrne, etc.). But, as most of them are downright un-interested, we don't want to be stuck with Harris Miller.

I've now come to the conclusion that James Webb is the Virginia Democratic Party's best hope.

That being said, I want to see Webb out on the road, going to local committee meetings, walking in parades, shaking hands, and getting his name out in the open. In our world of blogging, we sometimes forget that a common name to use will poll something like 15% name recognition (and 2%-3% may think he's the guy who wrote all of Glen Campbell's big hits). We can't win this race unless Webb is 100% committed and out on the road a lot.

That being said, go here and voice your support for James Webb for U.S. Senate!


Goodnight, Mrs. Calabash, wherever you are...

Neal: Nice, now don't forget to sign the petition urging him to run. Thanks!

I'm pretty sure that if Webb runs, he'll do all of that stuff. This guy seems like a fighter, and he would give Allen a hell of a fight. Robb, who Allen beat, was not much of a fighter (though I did like him). Webb won't be afraid to throw a few punches.
