Sen. Webb Avoids Talk of Potential VP Candidacy

Nguoi Viet, Posted: Jun 22, 2008

RICHMOND, Va. If Sen. Jim Webb has designs on being Barack Obamas Democratic running mate, he hasnt admitted it. Webb said hes happy as Virginias junior U.S. senator and didnt expect Obama, the Democrats presumptive presidential nominee, to invite him onto the ticket.But when asked in a conference call with reporters, whether he would join the ticket if Obama asks him, Webb carefully avoided saying ''no.'' Webbs record as a decorated Marine veteran of the Vietnam War, a former Navy secretary under President Reagan and an articulate early critic of the Iraq war, helped him win his Senate seat in 2006. His wife, Hong Le Webb, was born in Vietnam. If Webb becomes Vice President, Hong Le Webb would be the first Vietnamese American, and first Asian American, wife of a VP.
