Isn’t he the one who got elected because George Allen said “macaca”?

Is this the clown who handed a gun to his “friend” to carry into the capitol building only to let the guy take the fall?

He’d be wasting his time and money. Webb served in the Reagan Administration. No way the Dims would nominate him.

The little I know of Jim Webb is that he is centerist Liberal, and can give a good speech, piling on the propaganda and rhetoric.I get the impression that he has a rather bad temper, or becomes exasperated easily. He was an officer in the military, I believe. Oh, and he wrote numerous lurid, erotic novels, some describing Viet Cong women in terms that would get me banned here. So by today’s standards, this Jim Webb has a ‘varied and diverse’ skill set.

Not kiddie porn, per se. He wrote some porn scenes into his book(s). Never read one of them. Never plan to, either.

He voted for Obamacare, Porkulus, and every other Obama tax dollar giveaway program out there. How does he distinguish himself from the other dems who voted with Obama 90+% of the time?

I was a Virginia resident during the time he ran for the senate. I voted against him. Since then, I read most of his books. I did not find any of the porn to which many speak of now or during the campaign. My impression of him is that he is an excellent writer and researcher. As SecNav under Reagan, got p.o.’d when Congress tried to downsize the Navy, so he quit the job. Some of his writings get into the seamier parts of politics. I think he quit the Senate after his first term as a statement against professional politicians. I’ve been hoping for a follow up book blowing the whistle on all the shenanigans and criminal activities by the Dems in DC. Maybe the 6 year term was a research project. Highly anticipating his next book which is his own memoirs..

He’s a dirt bag, but he’d be better than another Clinton.

These people must have some type of mental disorder thinking they can run for POTUS...

Jim Webb has so much dirt on him...he would be buried in the first week...

Didn't he write a book about his Vietnam experience and had some pedophile writing in it?

‘Webb served as a Marine infantry officer in Vietnam and was awarded the Navy Cross, the Silver Star, two Bronze Stars and two Purple Hearts.’

Unlike the Glory Hound, Kerry, Webb was in heavy combat in a really bad AO, the Arizona Valley, SW of Danang in the war. His book, “Fields of Fire”,while fiction, is based on his experience in country and is well worth reading. Too bad he is a Dimocrat.

But is he worse than Jeb Bush?

Webb’s sick pedophilic/rape fantasy novel may appeal to more people now, with our culture having been more degraded in the years since.

I’d love to know the circumstances that led him down the Dem path. From serving the Reagan Administration to being a Dem senator who’s voted for all of Obama’s treacherous laws, just doesn’t add up.

So I take it that not all Democrats are buying into the inevitable nomination of Hillary. While few will say it in public, many believe that Hillary is a paper lion and can be taken down just she was during her certain path to the 2008 nomination.

There’s Webb and the governor of MD, at least, who are talking about running. It may be they are trying to position themselves as her (or someone else’s) VP?

I just don’t see her as ‘inevitable.’ When I hear that I think of her insistence with Couric in an ‘08 interview that she WILL BE the nominee.
