Democrat Jim Webb Stands Up For the Confederate Flag

Hmmm, I will consider voting for Jim Webb if he is the Democrats' candidate for President.  He is currently considering a run.

He has made some very common sense statements on the recent flag hysteria,  He wrote:
“This is an emotional time and we all need to think through these issues with a care that recognizes the need for change but also respects the complicated history of the Civil War,” Webb wrote in a post on Facebook.
He also said:
“We should also remember that honorable Americans fought on both sides in the Civil War, including slave holders in the Union Army from states such as Missouri, Kentucky, Maryland and Delaware, and that many non-slave holders fought for the South. It was in recognition of the character of soldiers on both sides that the federal government authorized the construction of the Confederate Memorial 100 years ago, on the grounds of Arlington National Cemetery.”
