American politics needed a jolt, Webb says. Was it this one? What about the Democrats in 2018?
The journalist pins him early on the fact that he refers to Democrats as "they," not "we." Webb thinks about that for a minute and says that, you know, he's not really part of the system at the moment -- he's thinking about this all from the outside, as the journalist is himself, and as are all of us here. It's still an interesting observation.
UPDATE: Another piece on Webb today wonders what might have been.
