From a statement issued by Sen. Jim Webb this afternoon:
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. Under no circumstances will I be a candidate for Vice President.
I have to wonder whether he’s decided that he’s not interested (unlikely) or whether Obama has taken Webb out of the running, and this is how Webb can save face. I remain convinced that Webb is the right man for the job, but that point has been mooted. The good news is that Webb will remain my senator.
