Jim Webb Declines to be on Short List for Obama's VP

See the story here. Although I like Webb, I'm not surprised that he pulled himself out of the running. He's an independent guy ("maverick" would be the right term) and not someone who is likely to relish the discipline and spotlight of a national campaign. It's also a bit hard to imagine him enjoying being vice president.

I'm thankful. Virginia needs him in the Senate. Jim Gilmore would jump at the chance of having another open Senate seat and not having to face off against Mark Warner.
