    Executive experience. As a governor, he has at least ran a budget. Hussein Obama was little more then a community organizer. Hollary Klinton is not even that. Having said all that. I am not voting for Jeb or Hollery.

    Same here. My problem with Jeb is that he is too much into "Go along to get along". I doubt that he would fight obamacare, illegal immigration, etc.

    Jeb would be a top contender.

    Christi can't win, but he will probably try.

    Rand Paul is better than Jeb IMO, but I have some issues with things he has said in the past. I don't expect him to win the primary either, but he probably has a better chance than Christi. I hope he actually preforms well.
    I like Rand Paul, but I worry too much about the father influence. I consider his dad, Ron Paul to be a drooling nut job.

    Jeb has the right credentials and experience to be President, however I think his last name will hurt him.
    I hope the next President will be a fiscal conservative, and get our finical house in order.
    I don't care much about social issues, except that the government should not limit peoples freedom.

    Yeah, I have that same concern....I swear if Jeb is the best we can come up with, we are really in bad shape. But with that said he would still be better than another minute of liberal progressive rule under a Hillary, or Warren.

    My hope is for someone like Scott Walker of Wisconsin.

John McCain went from "could not win a primary and carrying his own suitcases" to could not lose a primary, practically overnight. Republican voters should pick the nominee....not Karl Rove.
    McCain won the 2008 nomination fair and square, and would have made a fine POTUS.

    Right. Or Governor John Kasich of Ohio. Someone outside Washington with proven governing experience.

Hillary....I would not trust any further then I could throw her....which would not be far considering her massive BMI.
    Apparently at this early date having a last name of Bush or Clinton is more of a help than a hindrance. The ideology of these two is something the Republicans and Democrats will have to decide on as far as the nominations are concerned. I am more into the numbers aspect of it, especially the electoral college side of things.
    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.

    I think on the "numbers" side of things, Demo's are absolutely praying for a Jeb Bush nomination.
