Add former Virginia Sen. Jim Webb to the list of potential 2016 Democratic presidential candidates.

During his speech at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday, the former secretary of the Navy said he is “seriously looking at the possibility of running for president.”

Webb, who was recently called “Hillary Rodham Clinton’s worst nightmare” by the New York Times, said he would decide within the next four to five months.

During his speech, he tweeted: “A lot of people running for President seem to skip past the realities of governing into the circus of the political debate.”
