Jim Webb, Hillary Buster?!!

Share

It would appear That Jim Webb (former Senator from Virginia) is seriously considering running for President of the United States against Hillary Rodham Clinton! If he actually does proclaim his candidacy, he gets points just for having the temerity to challenge the coronation. Added to that, the possibility that Hillary will continue to self-implode, and I think it might be…
