Former Democratic Sen. Jim Webb Explores Presidential Bid

(NPR Interview)

Former Democratic Sen. Jim Webb Explores Presidential Bid
In considering whether to launch a presidential campaign, former Sen Jim Webb of Virginia tells Steve Inskeep his big challenge would be raising money to promote his ideas.

He talked about retuning to the Franklyn Roosevelt, Harry Truman, Andrew Jackson roots.

He also said Democrats could "Do a better job with white people."

He said in many cases white voters are being misunderstood as racist.

He wants to give everyone access to the corridor of power regardless of antecedents.

It is an interesting interview, but doesn't give much meat because the really doesn't talk about policies.

Well worth listening to.
