    The Republican Party has nominated enough losing establishment liberals from the SQRL wing of the party. Nominating another Bush is a really bad idea, if you want to unite the party and have a Reagan style landslide.

    Instead, we need a conservative unifier like Ted Cruz, or perhaps Scott Walker, Bobby Jindal, or Jim DeMint.

    His name brings a lot of baggage. John Kasich presents an equal resume without quite so much baggage, I think. That said, Bush would be a far better option than the non-Christie frontrunning candidate looking towards the office: Rand Paul.

    I like Jeb Bush. He has spoken against Republican ideas that were screwed up in the past. That type of honesty is appreciated. The Republican party should only want good Republicans.

    No, I think he would be compared to George w bush and I don’t think would be a good choice, regardless of what like ability he can bring with Hispanic voters because of his wife

    Any Presidential run by Jeb Bush will bring up the 2000 election where his brother won Florida with an election night vote count of 1,784 votes. that was reduced to a margin of 537 votes after a recount. As well as Florida Secretary of State, Katherine Harris, who was in charge of state election procedures, functioning as a Bush state campaign co-chairman. Some may say that this is old news. I agree, but there is already talk about how the Monica Lewinsky episode with Bill Clinton is fair game to be brought up in Hillary’s campaign because Bill could be first (what’s the opposite of lady?).. gentleman?

    Oh dear heavens, NO! This dynasty thing has got to stop. We don’t have a House of Lords. No more Bushes, Clintons or Kennedys.

    The Rove wing of the party wants Jeb– there’s a good sign for you. Rove hasn’t. gotten anything right since 2004.

    And you’re right on the amnesty thing, Karl.

    We need a competent executive, experienced in problems great and small. Any current or former Republican governor is better than Billary.

    Just plain N-O! He didn’t do that great of a job in Florida, and would most certainly carry the family influence with him. E-N-O-U-G-H already. Mickey Mouse would stand a better chance of being elected, and would, no doubt, do a better job. At least Mickey would be smart enough to make Batman Secretary of Defense, and maybe Donald Duck’s uncle Scrooge as Secretary of the Treasury.

    I doubt that Jeb would be elected – like another Romney – and if he were, there’d be more of the same as it was with brother dubya, which would most likely cause a switch of the administration back to the libertards in 2020.

    Exactly….Jeb Bush might not be my vote in the Republican primary…but if the choice is Clinton or Bush………

    We need another Bush like we need another 2008 near depression! Want the Dow to back below 8000 again and 7.9% unemployment? How about another two wars in the Middle East to pick up the oil industries sagging profits? Why did Mr. Family Values not attend his daughter’s drug trial? Why did his daughter have a drug trial? Thanks we have had enough Bush for one lifetime.

    Gov. Jeb Bush has great qualities. He is an effective administrator; yet unpretentious, sincere, and possesses the personal charisma so often lacking in our leadership today. I think he would make a very effective leader in the White House. He might even be powerful enough to steer our country away from the movement toward One World Governance advocated by so many at the U.N. and thereby preserve FREEDOM for all Americans.

    I saw a poll that said Gov. Mike Huckabee currently leads the pack for the GOP. I do not think Mr. Bush will run. As for the Dems, I don’t think Mr. Biden is going to hand Mrs. Clinton the nomination either.

    Good points made by all and I must say that this would truly be a ‘Hobson’s choice’ if faced with another Bush and a Clinton, but based on the state of the nation when each left office, I’d hold my nose and reluctantly vote for Hillary. I remain hopeful that it won’t come to that and a more viable choice will emerge.

    Jamie, I respectfully disagree. Jeb has accomplishments in his own right. Billary is an inexperienced executive. Raw ambition is no substitute for singular accountability and leadership.

    What has Jeb done that Daddy did not buy for him? At least Hillary worked her way to the top!

    Isn’t it sad that we either have retreads (Bush/Clinton) or made-by-media incompetence (Obama)? I suspect the best political leadership would rather stay out of the public cauldron.
