He constantly goes back and forth.
During the Reagan years, he was hard right, after that, he flip flopped so many times, for no reason what so ever that I lost count.
I'm not sure who he backed in 2004, since he ripped the living hell out of both Bush and Kerry.
Part of me thinks he sees himself as some kind of underdog referee who has a need to be on the outside.
Either that, or after years and years, he is starting to figure out how to be media savvy (hint, bashing republicans works and gets attention, bashing dems does not).
I think Webb is a rare commodity: a genuine American patriot.
