"I think what we really need to work on over the next four, five months, and it goes back to the speech that Sen. Obama gave [Tuesday] and this little fight that I've been watching and that is, we need to make sure that we take politics out of service," Webb said. "People don't serve their country for political issues."
*a bit of explanation: Jim Webb made his son's combat boots (from Iraq) a sort of campaign trademark in his 06 run for the Senate. He wore them, and brandished them, everywhere. He never tired of bringing up his service in Vietnam, or his son's current military service. The boots are now in a glass display case in his Senate office.
