Most of us who saw Jim Webb’s debate performance in the early Democrat debates couldn’t help but think maybe he was on the wrong stage.Whether it be guns, the economy, foreign policy, or healthcare, he certainly appeared to be on the right side of things. After dropping out of the race, Webb briefly considered an Independent run before ruling that out.
Perhaps the reason he ruled out an Independent run is because he didn’t want to take votes away from Republicans. As bizarre a strategy as that sounds from a Democrat, look who he won’t be supporting this election.Via PoliticoFormer 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 front-runner wasn’t inspirational.
“I would not vote for Hillary Clinton,” Webb said on MSBNC’s “Morning Joe.”When asked whether 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.
He said Clinton would simply continue President Barack Obama’s policies, but that with Trump, things would change — but he’s not convinced it would be for the better.
“If you’re voting for Donald Trump, you may get something very good or very bad,” Webb said. “If you’re voting for Hillary Clinton, you’re going to be getting the same thing.”The continuation of Obama’s policies will be so disastrous even DEMOCRATS are afraid.
