Really - where has Webb been for the past year?

Aside from that Trump doesn't need any help when it comes to discrediting himself.

Although it was on NBC's Met the Press with Chuck Todd, the lame stream media is not reporting, at least as far as I could find.

Important in that it shows that the Democratic ranks are not behind the strategy of adopting the GOP strategy of marginalization and delegitimization used against Bill Clinton, John Kerry ("swift boating"), and Barack Obama, and the obstructionism adopted to counter the ability of Obama to accomplish anything, even denying them the opportunity to fill a SCOTU seat.

The Democratic rank and file seem to be demand that the Dev pols respond in kind this time around, but all are not solidly behind it, it seems. Jim Webb is a crack that is appearing in the stonewall?

Repubs have majorities in Congress. At the same time, the Dems have not been obstructing Trump's appointment picks. Would the average voter care if they did?

If I were the Dems strategist I'd let Trump and Congress run wild. Let Trump deal with the crazy stuff Congress will come up with.

Regardless of what the Corporatist Establishment Democrats decide to do, progressives are fed up with them. These pols are doing the bidding of their donors, not their constituents.
