    Fingers in ears Back in 2015, when Jim Webb ended his campaign to become the Democrat’s presidential nominee, I referred to him as “the Dems’ only adult.” It had been clear, for months, that Webb stood no chance of gaining any sort of traction among the rabid lefties that control today’s Democrat party. It was just never going to happen. The reason? He’s sane.

    Former Democratic Virginia Senator and 2016 candidate Jim Webb had a friendly reminder to former President Bill Clinton, who mocked President-elect Donald Trump’s intelligence and said that his 1992 win over President George H.W. Bush was a real landslide. Trump clinched the presidency over Hillary Clinton with 304 electoral votes to her 227 (via Fox News): . . .

    Former Democratic presidential candidate Jim Webb sent a rare tweet Tuesday, poking fun at former President Bill Clinton's recent statement that he won the 1992 presidential election in a "landslide." "Bill Clinton reminds media that he won by a 'landslide' in electoral college," the former Virginia senator tweeted. "Let's remember he won only 43 percent of the popular vote."

    Thank you very much, thank you very much. It’s a pleasure to be with all of you today, and also to be here in support of the American Conservative Magazine, which I think is one of the fine magazines, thinkers’ magazines in the country today. I’d like to thank Bill Kauffman for that introduction. I will promise you that he has not read my speech, because I there are a few things he said that I actually want to talk about today. I don’t know if anybody has mentioned this or not, but this is Bill Kauffman’s birthday. Happy birthday,...

    Jim Webb is, at least in a nominal sense, a Democrat. Last year, he briefly pursued the Democratic nomination for president, a run best remembered for his joke about killing the Vietnamese soldier who threw a grenade at him. Now Webb is singing Donald Trump’s praises, and may have his eye on a cabinet job. “I would like to salute Donald Trump for his tenacity and for the uniqueness of his campaign,” Webb during a speech to a hundred or so attendees at a foreign policy symposium in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday. To hear Webb tell it, in fact, he...

    Former Sen. Jim Webb (D-VA) said part of the reason Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton lost is because white working people feel like they have become a “whipping post” for the Democratic Party’s “interest group politics,” which has made them think Democrats don’t like them... He continued, “What I think has happened, I mention in there from the immigration act of 1965 forward, the ethnic and racial makeup of the country has dramatically changed, but the laws with respect to affirmative action and diversity have not. I mean, the laws were originally designed to help African-Americans move away from what...

    Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ primary campaign was undermined by supposedly neutral party officials, according to a document snatched from Democratic National Committee by the hacker who calls himself “Guccifer 2.0.” The document shows that Clinton and the DNC have been working in together against Sanders from at least the spring of 2015. The document, dated May 26, 2015, shows that the DNC had already chosen Clinton as the party’s expected nominee and was going to work with reporters from mainstream outlets to downplay Clinton’s negatives and to highlight her positives throughout the course of the primary. The document was created...

    Former Democratic presidential candidate Jim Webb won’t be voting for Hillary Clinton, but he hasn’t ruled out casting his ballot for Donald Trump. Webb, who briefly flirted with an independent bid before deciding against it, said on Friday morning that the Democratic frontrunner wasn't inspirational. "I would not vote for Hillary Clinton,” Webb said on MSBNC's "Morning Joe." When asked if he'd vote for Trump, Webb said he wasn't closed to the idea. “I'm not sure yet. I don't know who I'm going to vote for,” he said.

    Webb said he wasn't sure whom he'd support for president, and said his issue with Clinton was "nothing personal." He also left open the door to support Trump, the GOP front-runner. "A certain group of people are seeing him as the only one who has the courage to step forward and say, 'We've got to clear out the stables of the American governmental system right now,' " Webb said.

Bush and Carville with Bill Clinton. Matalin and Carville have been married for 22 years. Before they took the stage at the Lutcher, they met with 12News. They were both...

    After the ridiculously close squeaker in the Iowa caucuses, the state's Democratic Party said it couldn't release the raw vote totals for Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. That simply isn't how they do business, party officials insisted. Even after they audited the results this week, Iowa Democratic officials would say only that Clinton won 49.84 percent of the vote and Sanders 49.59 percent, reducing her margin slightly to a quarter of a point. Sanders has called for the raw vote totals to be released. The state party says that's not the way it conducts the caucuses. And the press has...

    Saudi Arabia is mulling the sale of shares in Aramco, believed to be the world's most valuable company, as part of plans to repair its finances and open up its economy. The announcement was made by the country's deputy crown prince as Saudi's secretive, state-owned oil firm grapples with the effects of oil prices nearing 12-year lows . Mohammed bin Salman told The Economist: "That is something that is being reviewed, and we believe a decision will be made over the next few months." The Saudi economy has taken a battering from the oil price decline and the finance ministry...

    A former U.S. attorney thinks Hillary Clinton could face a criminal indictment from the FBI within the next 60 days. Joe DiGenova, a Republican U.S. attorney appointed by President Reagan, said Clinton's "biggest problem right now" is the open FBI investigation into the contents of her private emails. "They have reached a critical mass in their investigation of the secretary and all of her senior staff," DiGenova said Tuesday on the "Laura Ingraham Show" radio program. "And, it's going to come to a head, I would suggest, in the next 60 days." FBI Director James Comey has refused to answer...

    With all the noise and bluster coming from the Republican campaign, suggesting dysfunction among the Republican candidates, the fact is, Hillary Clinton is the most miscast character in the 2016 race. This is shaping up to be a change election, and nothing about a Clinton candidacy offers change. Period. While Republicans are engaged in a noisy, boisterous process that is at the very least compelling to watch, the Democrats appear to be letting Clinton sleepwalk them into the doldrums of a campaign that will not be able to channel the emotions of the electorate. Her campaign will only feed the...

    Democratic Party activists are conflicted over whether Hillary Clinton can take on Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump in the general election, with some fearing she provides too much ammunition for the flamboyant businessman's style of attack. While Mr. Trump is leading the national polls and calling the shots in what's become a circuslike GOP primary season, Mrs. Clinton tops a sedentary Democratic race with two other opponents respectfully nipping at her without doing much damage -- and party stalwarts are happy to have it that way. "I hear a lot of people saying, 'You know, I've watched the Democratic debates...
