Webb, who was secretary of the Navy under Republican President Ronald Reagan, resigned in protest of cutbacks in the Navy fleet. He has been a strong critic of the war in Iraq, saying that the Bush administration has never developed an exit strategy. Webb is a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy and served in the Marines in the Vietnam War.There's already some business guy in the dem side of the race, but methinks Webb will be the man. The fact that Webb is a decorated military man means he will come in for some severe swiftboating, but I feel a lot better about our chances in November with him in the running.
