I just read your column, "A Democrat I'd vote for." As usual, you are very truthful and accurate.
I was in Vietnam in the same places and at the same time as Jim Webb. He is a hero, and I endured the same things he did, and he was an organized and inspiring leader. He was in the 3rd battalion, 5th Marines, and I was in the 2nd battalion, 7th Marines. The war had a valid mission against an ISIS-like enemy, and these two battalions never lost a battle. But we paid a very high price in lives and injuries, and I will die of my injuries more likely than not.
My experience with Webb and his people has not been as pleasant. Webb has a superiority complex and suffers no fools, and a fool to him is someone in whom he is not interested or with whom he disagrees. He should be in the tea party, not in the party of socialists. He can't win; he knows it. But he can tell the Dumbocr-p fool audience the truth as he sees it, which is still Republican-based.

I think he was driven by his liberal lawyer wife to go over to the dark side. This is the third wife for Webb and I am not sure how many children he has, but then Trump is on his third wife as well. I am still on my first wife.
If one of them makes no mistakes, Trump, Carson or Fiorina will get the nomination as the Republican politicians are clearly giving off the message that if any of them get in the Big House, it will be business as usual and the Bush bureaucrats will take over departments, agencies, offices and bureaus just as they did under Shrub. I enjoy your columns.
