    However, should he pull off a miracle and get the nomination, his candidacy would be very competitive, which is something I cannot say about other possible candidates. But 2016 is a long ways off. The road to that nomination is going to be a very interesting one, and the winners of the ongoing civil war inside the GOP will determine who runs.

    He might not, but we most certainly should rule him out completely.

    Just tell the American people that we would be making history by having three Presidents from the same family for the very first time in the history of our nation.

    Jeb would win handily.

    We're deep like that.

    I'd vote for him I think. He did right by Florida.

    I'll vote, no more Bush's! This will never recover if another Bush, get in the White House again!

    If you really want to ensure that Democrat voters turn out, field another Bush.

    If you don't like any candidates, write in vote for yourself. Or a friend. Or someone you think would do a better job. If you don't make your voice heard, then your desires will never be enacted.

    Any American for whom that would be a positive seriously doesn't understand the point of this country. We are meant to oppose aristocracy, not embrace it. Political families like the Bushes and Kennedys are antithetical to the spirit of the United States.

    BS. If you live in Utah or California or any other state that isn't a swing state, there is no point in voting in the general election. A pointless exercise, really.

    Not All states allow write-in votes for President
