File: Undated: Former Virginia Democratic Sen. Jim Webb.
Former Democratic presidential candidate Jim Webb sent out a rare tweet on Tuesday to make fun of former President Bill Clinton’s recent statement that he won the 1992 presidential election in a “landslide.”
“Bill Clinton reminded the media that he won by a “landslide” in the electoral college,” the former Virginia-tweeted senator. “Let’s remember, he won only 43 percent of the popular vote.”

“Landslide? I have something like 370 electoral votes. It was a landslide,” Clinton said.
Clinton got the plurality of votes in the 1992 election with 43 percent of the vote. The Rest of the votes was shared by then-President George H. W. Bush, 37.4 percent, and independent candidate Ross Perot, who won 18.9 percent.
