    The world and America will never be ready for another Bush in office.

    Idiot is also a term for someone who would discount a candidate soley on their last name. As much as I dislike Bill Clinton, he is irrelevent to Hillarys candidacy in 2016. Jeb is not George. Jeb is a very popular governor, with solid credentials, a fresh personality, honest and unafraid. He takes risks, and ignores political pressure. And hes smart.

    If he takes great care in avoiding cronyism, and stays out of the gutter, he could be a very serious contender in 2016. I probably would still not vote for him because hes a Republican, and not a libertarian (small l), but I would not be unhappy to see him win.

    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.

    Article is here.
    CaptainCourtesy@DebatePolitics.com hasn't ruled out running in 2016 either.

    It all depends on the circumstances the country finds itself in come 2016. Back in 2000 there were quite a few people saying the wrong Bush was running for president. I think they were right. I would vote for Jeb Bush, I never voted for his brother G.W. Bush.
    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.

    He may be nothing like the others, but I cannot imagine our country electing another Bush as President in our lifetimes.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    If you want to vote for him, that's your right and prerogative; however, I will not fall for the propaganda that comes out of his mouth or from his hands, not for an instant.

    Jeb Bush won’t rule out 2016 run

    I look at it this way. If I could like a decent chunk of George W. Bush's domestic policy, and like some of what I am hearing from Jeb's mouth as of lately, I am not ruling the man out.

    I want the brand of "compassionate conservative" to come back. I will be influenced by direct issues closer to my own heart, some of which had started gaining attention by even the GOP's least talented (Palin), or entertained at the policy council level of W's administration.
