    Right now I do not know whom that would be. Christie and Bush are definitely establishment candidates if they run.
    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.

    We will have to see what shakes out. If the choice is between Jeb and Christie...my choice will be "none of the above".

    As of this point in time, I do not think Christie is going anywhere.

    no more clintons

    if either of them had any fresh ideas they'd have expressed them by now; instead they will run on reforming the various messes that they helped create. no thanks

    Except the next Cowboys game and the inaugurations of governors in the early primary states of Iowa and South Carolina.

    With the GOP convention moved up three months to June, Bush's moves are actually right on time,
    preempting some candidates and forcing others like Huckabee to get a move on .

    From an electoral college stand point, at this time Bush seems to be the candidate that would have the best showing electoral wise. I think bridgegate and perhaps a couple of other potential scandals have damaged Christie to where I do not think he could get above the 191 threshold of what I refer to as Republican trustworthy states. But it is still early.

    Huckabee is like Santorum, they are just vying for face time. I do not take either seriously.

    I would say the odds right now are 9-1 Clinton will be the Democratic nominee. Bush on the other hand is iffy. Probably no better than a 20% chance as of today that he will win the Republican nomination.

    RealClearPolitics - Election 2016 - 2016 Republican Presidential Nomination

    RealClearPolitics - Election 2016 - 2016 Democratic Presidential Nomination

    So if Jeb and Hillary do wind up at the two major political party's nominees, whom would you vote for? In Georgia we usually have third party choices like the Libertarians, the Constitutional Party and sometimes the Green Party. Would you vote third party or not vote at all?

    Ours is a country of voting for the lesser of two evils, has been for a long time...Myself, I would vote for Bush, but I damned sure wouldn't like it....We have to find a way to break this progressive lurch in our society...Whether Republican, or Democrat, progressivism is killing this country.

    Exactly, this country is in the habit of voting for the lesser of two evils or as I like to say. The least worst candidate. The problem is when voting for the least worst candidate, you still end up with a bad winner. The two major parties push the line when it comes to voting for third party candidates that it is a wasted vote, the third party candidate cannot win. But I think voting for a Republican or Democrat is a wasted vote, you are voting for business as usual regardless of that they say or the rhetoric they spout.

    My beliefs have led me to vote third party in 5 of the last 6 presidential elections. Perhaps if more voters would vote for whom they like, for whom they think would make the best president. Maybe, just maybe the two major parties would offer up better candidates. But then again, I doubt it.

    It seems we can do better.
    I like Jeb for president because I think after living under him as governor of Florida, he will do well. He did good here and left on a high note. Can't argue against success. Now I don't agree with all his policies as I think his school policies were just hit and miss. The choice of schools was a big hit while the common core nonsense and testing etc was a big miss.

    Of course I don't care about his last name all that much. So what can I say?
