New Sen. Jim Webb and the Second Amendment
Bloomberg.com has a incoming Senator Jim Webb (D-VA).
I'd agree he is going to stand out. A Demo who is, so far as I can see, very conservative (and probably acceptable to the Demos only because he didn't like the war in Iraq, and they wanted a chance at another Senate seat). A Marine with the Navy Cross *and* Silver Star, who likes the Confederacy, refused to shake John Kerry's hand for decades, etc., etc.
Of relevance: "Webb may be a novice politician but he's also a natural. He was careful to keep his most conservative leanings well camouflaged during the campaign. He is, for instance, an absolutist on Second Amendment rights -- the right to keep and bear arms -- but he made sure the subject seldom arose as he campaigned in the liberal suburbs of northern Virginia."
