    Americans agree with Barbara Bush

    (CNN) - Barbara Bush made national headlines last year when she said on NBC that her son Jeb shouldn't run for president in 2016 because "there are a lot of great families. It's not just four families, or whatever. There are other people out there that are very qualified. We've had enough Bushes."

    And in an interview earlier this year on C-SPAN, the former first lady added that "I think this is a great American country, and if we can't find more than two or three families to run for high office, that's silly.
    A new national poll indicates that most Americans agree with Bush, the wife of former President George H.W. Bush.
    Sixty-nine percent of people questioned in a NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released Wednesday said they agree, with a quarter saying they don't agree with her statements.

    Every now and then all good Bushes need a little trim. Excellent call.

    Re: Americans agree with Barbara Bush

    Jeb Bush seems like a somewhat agreeable guy to me I wouldn't have a problem with him being the GOP nominee
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    This next election, I am taking the ABC approach....

    Anybody but Clinton.... LOL!

    I hope that means not another Bush though. We barely survived the last one!

    When America wakes up in November 2016 and sees the choice is Jeb Bush or Hillary Clinton, Barbara's going to have to go out and get herself a new inauguration ball gown. Mother of two Presidents - pretty neat accomplishment, if you ask me.
