From the Richmond Times-Dispatch:
Webb speech praised Confederate ArmyI'm sure the die-hard cheerleaders for the Democratic Party will find some distinction between what Allen said and did many years ago and what James Webb said and did years ago. I wish they wouldn't waste their time.
In 1990, the Senate hopeful spoke of forebears' sacrifices

James Webb, one of two Democrats seeking the nomination to run against Sen. George Allen, once spoke of the bravery of Confederate soldiers. The speech is posted on his personal Web site, www.jameswebb.com.
In 1990, U.S. Senate candidate James Webb spoke movingly of the Confederate Army and his Confederate forebears. (link)
It's a non-issue. For both candidates. Let it go.
