    As I understand it he was a popular state governor. Now he may not be a conservative-but that makes him even more popular amongst moderates and independents.

    The left really should be cautious in writing him off.

    Being against Hillary is the only shot I can see Jeb having in possibly getting elected simply because the "OMG enough Dynasty crap and these old tierd names" isuse basically is even.

    You can argue that people were more fond of Bill Clinton than GWB, and that will have some impact, but I don't think that'll be so strong to overcome how people feel about Hillary and Jeb which I think could be different.

    Jeb going against ANYONE ELSE on the Democratic ticket would be a dead man imho. There's just too much antipathy towards the "old" connections with him. But against Hillary I think that becomes an extremely limited factor and thus becomes a more even race.

    According to her son Jeb Bush, at least.

    The former Florida governor told the Associated Press that his mother, former first lady Barbara Bush is now neutral to the idea of him running for president in 2016. It is a notable reversal from her comments last year on NBC"s "Today" when she said the country has had enough Bushes in the White House.

    Read the article here: Jeb Bush: Wife and Mother More Supportive of Potential Run - NBC News

    The only way that Jeb Bush will ever see the inside of the White House is as a guest.I don't believe that America will put another Bush in the White House.
    He's too moderate for the republicans. They also don't like his views on illegal immigration from Mexico.

    My guess is that he won't be the candidate. The GOP will run someone with more appeal to far-right evangelicals.

    your posts have consistently suggested that you think anyone who isn't a far lefty is stupid so I really don't have much faith in your assessment. One thing Jeb has going for him that his little Brother did not is he will appeal to Latinos far better than his brother.

    Factor in the fact that a good number of democrats are throwing up in their mouth actual speaking the words "I support Hillary Clinton for President", I think the biggest factor of all will be just how badly ****ed up the country is perceived to be come 2016. By most reckoning, Bush did a pretty decent job in Florida. If he chooses to run and has a solid message, he has decent appeal and at least a 50/50 shot.

    I doubt he will be the GOP nominee. Im not near as convinced Hillary will be the dem nominee as I was a year ago.

    Stupid is as stupid does and the way he handled that Schaivo case was not smart. He will never get the nomination unless the Party appoints him anyway. He will get killed in the primaries. It is inconceivable that Rubio could be out but not Jeb who is even more "pro-immigrant" that he is. He's another "compassionate conservative" just like GW. Is that what you think the GOP needs?

    that was one bit of stupidity but then again it pales compared to Cankles' screw up with our ambassador getting killed. I am hoping for Rob Portman myself.
