    Care to make a wager on that?

    I could vote for Jeb....one of the few moderates available, and yet to be tainted with Tea.

    Unfortunately, he will likely be prevented from candidacy by the new party...and thus I will not be allowed to vote for him.

    I don't bet on good things I wish will happen. But I feel pretty confident.

    It is better to bet on the opposite of what you want. It is like a hedge.

    He's got it all, including the multicultural mixed family that is so part of America today. He's just the type of transformational candidate that Obama never was. And he's got the rock solid personal convictions that you don't need to poll and test in the wind. He's authentic and will appeal to a large part of the Republican party and beyond. Not enough people really know him yet, but as he enters the race and the debates and people see him as a serious, even temptered adult, people will be drawn to what he offers.

    True, but the opposite of Jeb Bush is something America doesn't need after 8 years of Obama.

    Well if you feel confident, let's make a wager. I feel absolutely sure you're wrong. I'm willing to make a wager on it.

    Hardly seems like a fair wager - I get Jeb Bush and you get 330 million other Americans, give or take about 4 or 5 live former Presidents who can't run. Tell you what, I'll take Jeb Bush and you take someone else, any political persuasion, and we'll go head to head.

    But YOU said Jeb Bush was going to be the nominee and that Jeb Bush was going to be President of the United sates. Shall I repost your quote in case you forgot? Sounds like you aren't as confident as you think. Was it just internet bravado getting to you?
