Jim Webb was not treated fairly; maybe 'No Label' would be best

To The Daily Sun,

Anderson Cooper did a great disservice to a great American, Senator Jim Webb. I was in support of him very early on and gave him a stipend for campaign funding and volunteered to man phones to help him. Maybe he wants to get his feet wet and will run again.

I realize he did not have a lot of money, but New Hampshire is a place to campaign in the first primary and does not take a lot of money. He could have rented a recreation vehicle, stayed in the state for a while and he would be on the money. He has an exemplary dossier; an ex-marine, Sec. of the Navy, fought in Vietnam and Senator of Virginia.

Sen. Webb tried several times to get in the debate and Mr. Cooper kept saying to him, "you agreed to the rules". Gov. O'Malley got too much attention and Sen. Webb could not get a word in edgewise. Fox News thinks he should go to the Republican Party or perhaps the "No Labels" problem-solver, non-bias form of campaigning reform that I attended in Manchester on Oct. 12.
