The Virginia freshman Senator is Shermanesque in removing himself from the running.
Says in statement: “Last week I communicated to Senator Obama and his presidential campaign my firm intention to remain in the United States Senate…Under no circumstances will I be a candidate for Vice President.”
Some keen observers believe Webb was not actually being seriously considered.
The Atlantic: Obama’s vetting team gave Webb a list of what they needed to begin their search into his background, career last week and that’s when he refused the slot.
Also reports McCain’s vetting team is looking at 8 to 10 candidates including Pawlenty, Romney.
