A Vietnam vet, former Congressman, novelist and ex-Republican who left his old party, in part, over the Iraq war, Webb stands for, in his own site's words:
- Refocusing America's foreign and defense policies in a way that truly protects our national interests and seeks harmony where they are not threatened.
- Repairing the country's basic infrastructure, which has eroded badly over the past decade, and developing more creative ways to assist disaster-stricken areas such as those in New Orleans and along the Gulf coast.
- Reinstituting notions of true fairness in American society, including issues of race, class, and economic advantage; and
- Restoring the Constitutional role of the Congress as an equal partner, reining in the unbridled power of the Presidency.
Webb faces a typically reactionary GOP incumbent, the chortling jerk George Allen (whose racist past is catching up with him
). Let's help Jim turn Virginia blue. Click here to check out a powerful ad from VoteVets
