Jim Webb in 2012 or 2016?

Tim Craig

There's been lots of speculation that Sen. James Webb (D) could be on the short list for vice-president in 2008. But maybe Webb has his eye on the top job?

And, as everyone knows, the road to the Democratic presidential nomination in 2012 or 2016 will likely run through New Hampshire. Webb, 61, will be keynote speaker Saturday at New Hampshire Democratic Party Annual Jefferson Jackson Dinner in Manchester.

Webb's appearance reminds me of a private discussion I had with one of his campaign staffers after last year's U.S. Senate race. The friend said Webb wants to be President someday. Webb just laughed when I asked him later whether a presidential run is in his future.

How would he get the nomination? He still has the stain of being a republican

If all Republicans were like Jim Webb, I would change parties. As it is, I'm glad Jim is a Democrat

If all Democrats were like Jim Webb, I would trust Democrats more with my family's safety and security. But they aren't, so I won't.
