    I didn't derail the thread - you did. My original post was about the effects of Trump on Clinton and a counter to your point about Perot by pointing out that Buchanan/Nader did the same to Gore. I appreciate that any comment that isn't in lock step with what the DNC tells you to post is considered "derailing", but some of us actually have broader minds than that.

    He's a momentary blip, just like Carson was when he announced, just like Paul was when he announced, just like Cruz was when he announced, etc. etc. etc. Bush is the only consistent as leader. You can dream about a Trump train wreck, but you're going to wake up to another President Bush.
    OMG, Bush IV, or Clinton II.

    Plus ca change.
    Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?

    You dishonestly changed the argument, so I countered that piece of **** too.

    so you admit, before even trying to discuss my point (it's my thread! go start your own on your topic if you want!) about Perot's role in Bush/Clinton, you shifted the topic to x/Bush/Gore.

    Yes, you derailed the thread.

    Just Bush III, but perhaps Hillary will still be trying to win the crown when Bush IV comes along - she'll be fossilized, but don't count her out.

    Aww, poor little petty liberal tyrant - "it's my party and I'll cry if I want to". Put on your big boy pants and stop whining.

    She may be fossilized by the end of her term anyway, should she be elected.

    Surely there must be someone somewhere in this nation of 300 million or so individuals who would make a better POTUS than any of the current crop of wannabes.

    Somewhere, somewhere, isn't there?

    While I do think Jeb Bush will be a good President, your comment isn't without merit. It's often said that no one who'd even remotely be qualified to fill the position is stupid enough to seek it. Why put yourself through the over the top intrusion into your personal life that these candidates go through - it's dehumanizing in many respects. And the families suffer along with it. I'm not surprised that Barbara Bush made the comments she did about enough Bush's - I'm sure she hates her family being picked apart.

    Exactly right. That's also why Romney promised his wife he wouldn't run again. See my sig line.
