Breaking: Webb exits VP lottery

posted at 4:31 pm on July 7, 2008 by Ed Morrissey

Jim Webb announced today that he does not want to be Barack Obama’s running mate in the 2008 election.  In a statement released by his office, Webb said he told Obama last week not to select him as he wants to remain in the Senate for longer than a third of a single term:

Last week I communicated to Senator Obama and his presidential campaign my firm intention to remain in the United States Senate, where I believe I am best equipped to serve the people of Virginia and this country. Under no circumstances will I be a candidate for Vice President. …

I entered elective politics because of my commitment to strengthen America’s national security posture, to promote economic fairness, and to increase government accountability. I have worked hard to deliver upon that commitment, and I am convinced that my efforts and talents toward those ends are best served in the Senate.

The only thing this changes is the speculation before the convention.  Obama wasn’t likely to choose Webb in any case.  Webb has less experience in national office than Obama, and only slightly more executive experience.  Webb could have helped carry Virginia, which would be a big blow to the GOP, and maybe given Obama more credibility with gun owners — but he can do both as a surrogate just as well, while Obama finds a running mate that addresses his serious inadequacies as a presidential candidate.

Obama needs someone with either military experience or a serious track record as an executive.  I expect him to choose Gov. Kathleen Sibelius of Kansas, who can help him with bitter Midwesterners clinging to guns and religion, as well as more seriously estranged women who resent his campaign against Hillary Clinton.

I expect him to choose Gov. Kathleen Sibelius of Kansa, who can help him with bitter Midwesterners clinging to guns and religion, as well as more seriously estranged women who resent his campaign against Hillary Clinton.

Yep, and all the better to push his phony meme that he has “Kansas values” just like his typical white grandparents with her on board.

Hmm…now to whom could that also apply?

James on July 7, 2008 at 4:35 PM

Good. He made me nervous, in that he gave Obambi a little of something he desperately needs: military/defense credibility. Even if he is a rookie, he’s 10 times better than O’Carter.

Jaibones on July 7, 2008 at 4:37 PM

Sibelius is horrible but she would probably help Obama.

Just ask anyone who lives in Kansas.

roux on July 7, 2008 at 4:38 PM

Except some of the seriously estranged women, who are ticked off because Hillary was pushed aside by a younger, less qualified man, may also be ticked off because Hillary was pushed aside for a younger, more attractive [running] mate. Obama has to answer the question: if the VP is to be a woman, why not Hillary? An uncomfortable question to answer. Too old? Too much baggage? Could he ask Hillary to campaign for Sebelius?

Sebelius is Catholic, yet is such a pro-choice advocate that her bishop has advised her not to attend Communion. I doubt Obama wants a “wafer watch” to see if she’s turned away from the altar rail.

Wethal on July 7, 2008 at 4:38 PM

Obama’s response…”That’s not the Jim Webb I knew.”

But Michelle’s children were just getting to like Uncle Jim… Throw another one under the bus… Uncle Jim screwed the pouch when he militarily dissed McCain, when he was trying to cover for Weasely Rabbit Clark…

Sergei on July 7, 2008 at 4:41 PM

Looks to me like Dude is planning to run for President himself someday, or maybe sees a spot w/Hillary in 2012.

Mike D. on July 7, 2008 at 4:43 PM

Sibelius might also help get the classical music voters.

BigD on July 7, 2008 at 4:44 PM

Or Webb is keeping quiet to take the heat off himself while he prepares to be named VP.

Sorry, some of that good ol’ liberal conspiracy mongering must be rubbing off on me.

Bishop on July 7, 2008 at 4:47 PM

Gov. Kathleen Sibelius of Kansas is not a darling of the midwest. She is infamous here for making sure that Tiller the Killer is allowed to avoid charges that he assists men who impregnate underage girls through statutory rape and incest are guaranteed to have their identities safe and secure, never to be charged. One little girl was brought in by her father at 11, 12, and twice at 14 for abortions, and Sebilius made sure Tiller was never charged for not reporting possible child abuse. The choice in that case was for the father to continue to choose to rape his daughter as much as he wanted without any consequences whatsoever.

At lease she and Obama would get along real well.

JustTruth101 on July 7, 2008 at 4:48 PM

It’s more likely that Obama didn’t need Webb’s mysoginist background to intrude on the campaign; too many women already dislike Obama, he doesn’t need to make it worse.

Bishop on July 7, 2008 at 4:48 PM

I expect him to choose Gov. Kathleen Sibelius of Kansas, who can help him with bitter Midwesterners clinging to guns and religion, as well as more seriously estranged women who resent his campaign against Hillary Clinton.

Ed, I suspect you are on dangerous ground, thee.

BigD on July 7, 2008 at 4:49 PM

Obama……I still can’t believe there are enough really stupid Americans to choose this guy as a national party candidate for POTUS.

What in God’s name could these fools be thinking? That guy isn’t qualified to be a deck hand on a shrimp boat much less President.

The USA appears to be fading fast if this sham is the best we can come up with as a leader of the free world.

Disgusting.

saiga on July 7, 2008 at 4:50 PM

Dang it Democrats would not have a child porn writer as VP and someone who hates women??

BroncosRock on July 7, 2008 at 4:51 PM

BigD on July 7, 2008 at 4:49 PM

Estranged or Strange.. have you read about her?

Being female makes me sick that she is even a Gov. especially if you read the wiki about her and late term abortions.

upinak on July 7, 2008 at 4:51 PM

Darn, I guessed it would be him on Veepstakes.

doodleduh on July 7, 2008 at 4:53 PM

Well since Obama spent 143 days as a junior Senator before deciding to run for President, you really wouldn’t want someone more senior on the ticket. It might bring out your total lack of qualifications, experience and lack of understanding of America.

tarpon on July 7, 2008 at 4:55 PM

I look at him, I look at her, and I don’t see it.

BigD on July 7, 2008 at 4:59 PM

Darn.

So much for my vote in then Pajamas Media Veepstakes.

wise_man on July 7, 2008 at 5:00 PM

Webb is a veteran and Obama doesn’t want to risk losing the MorOn.org vote.

Bishop on July 7, 2008 at 5:00 PM

Oops. doodleduh said the same thing.

tarpon on July 7, 2008 at 4:55 PM

That’s why they would have made a ‘perfect match.’ (too lose.)

Want a scary thought?

What if Barry doubled-down on race, offered the VP slot to Colin Powell, and Powell accepted.

Typhoon on July 7, 2008 at 5:04 PM

I’m guessing that Ocarter (glad to see I’m not the only one calling him that) read some of the vile things Webb has included in some of his books and decided that Reverend Wright’s rants would be a welcome return.

ynot4tony2 on July 7, 2008 at 5:05 PM

Obama wont pick Powell because the nutroots would hate it over Powell’s backing of the invasion of Iraq.

Is still Chet Edwards of Texas. Pelosi is pushing him.

William Amos on July 7, 2008 at 5:06 PM

OT, I can’t help but notice that Jim Webb’s giant head would actually be proportional to Obama’s ears.

ReubenJCogburn on July 7, 2008 at 5:10 PM

If Obama were smart, he’d consider Jane Harman. Not only would she help him with disgruntled feminists, but also she would draw more moderates, centrists, and reagan Dems, and shore up the ticket’s national security credentials.

Which is why I hope that he DOESN’T consider her.

Salamantis on July 7, 2008 at 5:10 PM

She would also help him take California.

He needs more time to write homo-erotic boy love novels.

revolution on July 7, 2008 at 5:14 PM

This is probably a big blow to Obama, who hoped to have a chance at winning VA, as well as having a VP who once served in the Reagan Administration (how far Webb has fallen!). But, to Webb’s credit, he is serious about wanting to finish his Senate term, unlike a certain Hillary Rodham Clinton, or a certain Barack Hussein Obama.

If Obama goes for Sebelius, in order to have a non-Hillary woman on the ticket (trying to get Hillary’s women voters without Bill tagging along), McCain should definitely go with Governor Sarah Palin of Alaska–now THAT would make for an interesting VP debate! Sebelius is vehemently pro-abortion in a pro-life state, so McCain would need a woman to defuse the pro-life=anti-woman argument, and Sarah Palin, with her strong pro-life position and five children would definitely fit the bill!

Steve Z on July 7, 2008 at 5:14 PM

I thought “true believers” were not to turn down their standard bearer if asked to serve as VP.

Looks like Webb has future ambitions and/or no desire to have his wierd life and writings revealed to a national audience.

EJDolbow on July 7, 2008 at 5:16 PM

Yep, and all the better to push his phony meme that he has “Kansas values” just like his typical white grandparents with her on board.

Buy Danish on July 7, 2008 at 4:35 PM

That reminds me of a report I saw on some of the commercials Obama’s been running in the midwest. The spots are supposed to emphasize Obama’s “patriotic American values” and show just how much Obama is like all the regular folks in flyover country. Lots of pictures of and references to his mother’s family; of course, nary a mention of (or picture of) his Kenyan/communist/bigamist father.

I find it ironic that a man who spent his entire life trying to distance himself from the white part of his family (and even writing about wishing that he could be rid of his white blood) is now making such a concerted effort to cloak himself in their whiteness (as well as their military service). I just hope there’s some 527 group out there somewhere that is going to make some commercials exposing Obama’s blatant hypocrisy on this point.

AZCoyote on July 7, 2008 at 5:18 PM

Well, Sebelius has really stuck her foot in her mouth the past couple of years. She has been much busier towing the democrat line than governing Kansas. It won’t help in the Midwest. Also, if you have ever seen her speak…boring! She is a gray haired skeletor.

bopbottle on July 7, 2008 at 5:19 PM

Sibelius might also help get the classical music voters.

Only if she promises to sing “Finlandia” at the convention. And probably not even then. Jean Sibelius understood a few things that Dems have problems with, like patriotism and border defense.

NeighborhoodCatLady on July 7, 2008 at 5:22 PM

Isn’t it arrogant to decline a honor before it is bestowed on you? Is it only me or do others find Webb to be a thick headed dolt?

David in ATL on July 7, 2008 at 5:23 PM

AZCoyote on July 7, 2008 at 5:18 PM

Does your ads also have what bills he passed. LOL I about died watching one last night.

I guess this sight shows nothing on what he has said, or done (more like never done)… snickers:

Look at that photo. I’m not surprised he writes garbage in his books… he looks like the neighborhood pervert.

D2Boston on July 7, 2008 at 5:26 PM

This is a badly flawed person with lotsa Baggage and several Skeletons in his roomy closet. It’s a disgrace to the ‘better half’ of the people of Virginia that this POS got elected to the Senate by a few thousand votes–and hose margin of victory probably came from fraudulent / dead voters in a state where the Dems made a High Art of voter fraud

Is it only me or do others find Webb to be a thick headed dolt?

Yes, it’s only you.

Monkei on July 7, 2008 at 5:37 PM

Well since Obama spent 143 days as a junior Senator before deciding to run for President,

Yeah, surely we don’t want another experienced individual like GWB in the whitehouse. Maybe experience like that of Mr 23 percent is overrated.

So our choice is the inexperienced senator, or the old confused guy from Arizona.

Monkei on July 7, 2008 at 5:39 PM

I expect him to choose Gov. Kathleen Sibelius of Kansas

Good. Obama doesn’t vet his picks before he makes them, so this should be interesting.

What does that other elder statesmen, Caroline Kennedy, have to say about the Kansas Governor? I bet Sibelius tells Caroline that she just loved her father, and that her mother was so brave.

JiangxiDad on July 7, 2008 at 5:40 PM

So our choice is the inexperienced senator, or the old confused guy from Arizona.

The MSM would glorify has writings as genius and
rise him to the low standard of Gore Vidal. Belch.

Texyank on July 7, 2008 at 5:51 PM

At least for the campaign, if Sebelius was chosen as the VP candidate, she would be out of the state for a while.

Hey, this hurts Obama’s image and smarts his ego with a smackaroo air brushed ear boxing. He’s been turned down by a credible military VP pick before he even extended the invitation to dance! LOL! So much for bringing everyone together; bobama can’t even get a well recognized VP to tag along for the bumpy bus ride to hell.

maverick muse on July 7, 2008 at 5:54 PM

If Kathleen Sibelius of Kansas accepts Bobama’s proposal, she can’t cry later that she didn’t know he’d use and abuse her before running over her like Grandma redux.

maverick muse on July 7, 2008 at 5:57 PM

Yeah, Monkei; we need the experience to drive popularity numbers even lower. Like in the 12% Congress; lower than HMOs.

michaelo on July 7, 2008 at 5:59 PM

I voted for Joe Biden on that.

terryannonline on July 7, 2008 at 5:03 PM

When I heard the pro-Biden talk on FNS yesterday, I thought that of all the whacks, maybe Biden could offer a shred of sanity to Obama’s malleable non-platform.

maverick muse on July 7, 2008 at 6:01 PM

wise_man

I think that Webb just told Obama to stop, drop and roll.

maverick muse on July 7, 2008 at 6:03 PM

LOL

Webb’s no fool. The Good Ship Obama is sinking fast, and he wanted no part of the Wesley Clark Trash Talk Express.

rockmom on July 7, 2008 at 6:06 PM

What is that on Webb’s head ? A squirrel, turd, or what ? And yes, this is meant as a personal attack so leave me alone.

JonRoss on July 7, 2008 at 6:06 PM

Who has got the worse case of crazy-eyes?
Webb or Wes Clark?

Stephen M on July 7, 2008 at 6:09 PM

sibelius: anti-coal.

and that means her as veep would help mccain.

itz gonna be nunn and ridge.

reliapundit on July 7, 2008 at 6:17 PM

So our choice is the inexperienced senator, or the old confused guy from Arizona.
Monkei on July 7, 2008 at 5:39 PM

Eh, more like the inexperienced, confused, senator from Illinois. I’ll take the old guy over the windsock.

Bishop on July 7, 2008 at 6:18 PM

If Sebelius is chosen as the VP candidate, I would assume it would be because Obama expects her to carry Ohio for him. Her father is former Ohio governor, John Gilligan.

windybon on July 7, 2008 at 6:22 PM

So, in other words, Webb doesn’t want the blame when Obama loses Virginia after all the hype that BarryO would win Virginia. Smart.

SouthernGent on July 7, 2008 at 6:23 PM

That, and he did not want to be part of a campaign attacking John McCain’s military service. The VP nominee is the attack dog. No way Jim Webb was gonna be an attack dog against John McCain. This should tell us a lot about who Obama will pick. It won’t be Sebelius.

rockmom on July 7, 2008 at 6:53 PM

Oh yeah, Webb is running for the ’12 VPOTUS slot and then the ’16 POTUS (Hillary will be far too old for ’16)

Virginia is a rathole for Comrade B.H. Obama that he can’t win.

SeniorD on July 7, 2008 at 6:54 PM

Ummm,here’s a wild idea,how about Democrat
Harold Ford Jr.?

canopfor on July 7, 2008 at 7:05 PM

maybe Biden could offer a shred of sanity to Obama’s malleable non-platform. another high tech lynching of a decent and honest person.

maverick muse on July 7, 2008 at 6:01 PM

Biden might be clean and articulate but he is still a buffoon.

Branch Rickey on July 7, 2008 at 7:07 PM

I think he’ll choose my =gag= governor, Janet Napolitano. She’s more centrist than he is, & she’s had nothing but fawning news coverage from AZ’s largest newspaper, the Arizona Republic Repulsive.

jgapinoy on July 7, 2008 at 8:04 PM

…That would pit our senator against our governor in a battleground match.

jgapinoy on July 7, 2008 at 8:05 PM

Speaking of idiot surrogates, I just listened to Jennifer Granholm on an Obama Conference call lecturing McCain on the economy.

HAHAHAHAHHA

Squid Shark on July 7, 2008 at 8:44 PM

Poor little Monkei. Someone disrespecting your buddy Webb? That’s just too bad. And for anyone who hasn’t seen this yet, I present to you,

Not at all unwise guy. Like I said, you have a choice, the inexperienced guy or the old confused guy. What part of that don’t you understand? And you call youself a wise guy? It would be nice to have a president who can speak the english language again however.

Monkei on July 7, 2008 at 9:22 PM

Monkei on July 7, 2008 at 9:22 PM

Webb is a toolbag. I rember this idiot wearing his sons combat boots during his campaign and then he has the stones to tell McCain to tone down his talking about his service. McCain has a son in the fight too, but you never hear about it.

Squid Shark on July 7, 2008 at 9:37 PM

itz gonna be nunn and ridge.

Aahhh Nunn, remember when we had foreign policy and defense dems in congress.

Squid Shark on July 7, 2008 at 9:38 PM

Webb’s no fool. The Good Ship Obama is sinking fast, and he wanted no part of the Wesley Clark Trash Talk Express.

rockmom on July 7, 2008 at 6:06 PM

Rockmom, I Hope your right. Webb is an opportunist
so it could be he See’s the writing on the floor.

Texyank on July 7, 2008 at 9:53 PM

[SARCASM] I expect Barrack Obama to appoint Jerimiah Wright or an Islamic Imam or his wife who looks good on him to be his running mate. [/SARCASM]

Actually, good on the Senator. I think Obama’s only hopes are Hillary or somebody from the cast of “The West Wing”. Once Senator “All American” McCain cuts through the sleaze, it’ll be game over!

HotAirJosef on July 7, 2008 at 10:03 PM

Agreed, rockmom, that Webb would not want to trash-talk McCain. As others have said, Webb probably sees the crash-and-burn ahead for the Good Ship Obama and will save his opportunism for better days ahead. There is some beautiful irony in Webb’s pointing out his own brief tenure in Congress precludes him from considering the position of VP. It’s too bad that the Community Organizer doesn’t recognize his own shortcomings in that department.

Concerning Sibelius: Isn’t she the governor who was crying the blues about not having enough National Guard support when a tornado devastated a small town (Greensburg?) in her state because the personnel were all in Iraq? Her woebegone sound bites were a cheap shot for political points.

The Dems do not have many admirable possible candidates, do they? Pickings are slim, especially since they live and die by identity politics.

onlineanalyst on July 7, 2008 at 11:37 PM

If Obama were smart [too easy for a joke; it would be like fish in a barrel], he’d consider Jane Harman.

I’d pay to be a fly on the wall with the inevitable cat fight with Pelosi.

Branch Rickey on July 7, 2008 at 11:50 PM

Is it only me or do others find Webb to be a thick headed dolt?

Yes, it’s only you.

Only ‘monkei’ doesn’t; I do.

It would be nice to have a president who can speak the english language again however.

Monkei on July 7, 2008 at 9:22 PM

At least Bush knows how many states are in The Union.

Branch Rickey on July 8, 2008 at 12:08 AM

Webb didn’t have to run a campaign for his Senate seat. He was questioned less by the Virginia media than Barry O has been by the national. He won because of the word “macaca” and pretty much nothing else.

He has pretty much done nothing for Virginia that has affected daily life here. I take that back. He’s followed the Democrat party line and helped increase gasoline prices substantially.

TugboatPhil on July 8, 2008 at 12:11 AM

Webb is a good leader and will someday make a good candidate.

I also agree that he and McCain have been friends for so long he could not actively campaign against him.

If you have not read “Lost Soldiers” “Fields of Fire” or “The Emperors General” try to…they are great great books.

If there were more Dems like Webb, the party would not be hostage to freaks at Moveon and Daily Kos…..

The Dems would be well served to get some more Conservative Democrats like Webb back into the party.

The people who bash Webb on this blog need to look again at Webb, his writings, record, and years of service to this country.

arizonateacher on July 8, 2008 at 1:32 AM

Webb said he told Obama last week not to select him as he wants to remain in the Senate for longer than a third of a single term:

I dont know – two years in the Senate worked for Obama. It gave him enough experience to be President.

abcurtis on July 8, 2008 at 9:34 AM

Isn’t it arrogant to decline a honor before it is bestowed on you? Is it only me or do others find Webb to be a thick headed dolt?

David in ATL on July 7, 2008 at 5:23 PM

I always had the impression that Webb is an arrogant bully, sort of like Howard Dean. They are the two that push the smaller kids around on the playground and steal their lunch. I didnt think much of Webb when he worked for Reagan and I think even less of him now.

abcurtis on July 8, 2008 at 9:58 AM

Janos Hunyadi on July 7, 2008 at 5:30 PM

As a Virginian, I agree. But George Allen had his “macaca” moment and the media saw to it that it would be the albatross around his neck. Had that not have happened, we’d be looking at candidate Allen rather than candidate McCain. Webb won because Allen was branded a racist because somebody said he used the “N” word 35 years ago in college, although never substantiated. Whether he did or whether he didnt, 35 years is a long time to hold a grudge.

abcurtis on July 8, 2008 at 10:04 AM

The people who bash Webb on this blog need to look again at Webb, his writings, record, and years of service to this country.

arizonateacher on July 8, 2008 at 1:32 AM

I read Fields Of Fire when it came out 30-some years ago, and liked it.
My problem with Webb is not what he wrote, or his military service, which I will never criticize. My problem is what he and the socialist democrats stand for now. I have to shake my head at any combat veteran (except Kerrry) who becomes a socialist democrat.
Webb will never get a vote from me. Period.

abcurtis on July 8, 2008 at 10:08 AM

I’ve got it!

They might as well take this all the way.
