Scots-Irish Democrat Jim Webb mulls a presidential run

Despite my profound disagreement with him on social issues, I've always had a grudging admiration for former Senator Jim Webb. And of course, he's a fellow Scots-Irishman.

He's forming an exploratory committee to examine running against Hillary for the 2016 Democratic nomination as a populist.

Sorry, Jim. The sanctity of human life and the survival of marriage are too important. And class envy isn't a constructive platform.

But better Webb than, say, Elizabeth Warren.
