    I gotta agree with this. She's not personable at all. I couldn't get behind her at all in 2008 because she was so fake it was gross. She wanted to "break the glass ceiling" for women by out manning the men. I think we could benefit from being a more matriarchal society and here she is ,as a woman, trying to out macho the men by being more war hawkish so that she doesn't come off too womanly. Too much fakery. Don't know where she's at now but then, it was such a gross display of phoney it was impossible for me to even think of backing her.

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.
    I don't know about that. Jeb Bush could deliver Florida, something McCain and Romney couldn't. but with two years to go, nothing is guaranteed. Not even Hillary being the Democratic nominee. I do think a lot of us long for another president like her husband, Bill. Good times basically during his presidency. But Hillary isn't Bill. Jeb isn't his dad or his brother.

    I have a feeling that neither one will be vying for the presidency after their conventions are over.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Hillary Clinton running for President demonstrates the Democrats will vote for anything with a (D) behind it.

    No, she is not personable. Neither was Nixon in 1968 or the first Bush in 1988. It all depends on what has happened between now and then and what the public is looking for. It also depends on whom the Republicans nominate as to her chances. As it stands today, the Democrats trustworthy states would put her very close to the 270 electoral votes needed to win.

    Bill was a down home type of guy, his wife isn't. But unless the GOP finds someone like Eisenhower who appeals to the masses, not just the hard core right. She doesn't have to be. Maybe Jeb Bush could, I do not know. I think he would do better than Paul or Cruz. But there is also the possibility that the two candidates that will be running against each other in 2016 isn't even on our radar screen yet.

    Jeb would take Florida's 29 electoral votes. He was very popular with independents, as well as Republicans - conservatives.

    You are kidding right? With Hillary we get Bill Clinton too for another 8 years. He actually did a good job already. But you would vote for the brother of the biggest failure in modern history? Yes GW's Great recession holds the record.
