    Lots of responses, but not one single response that actually addresses his qualifications. Forget about the whole "dynasty" thing and judging him based on his brother and look at him and his qualifications alone and then make a decision. Challenge yourselves to think and reason and express an opinion based on what truly matters instead of emotional responses.
    Our nation has not always lived up to its ideals, yet those ideals have never ceased to guide us. They expose our flaws, and lead us to mend them. We are the beneficiaries of the work of the generations before us and it is each generation's responsibility to continue that work. - Laura Bush

    I clicked for it to be public. It appears that feature isn't working.

    Would you vote for Jeb Bush?
    Back in the days that I was a strong conservative, I would have in a heartbeat. But now? Please.

    And in the latter half of the Bush 43 administration, I thought to myself that Jeb had to be banging his head against the wall, cursing Dubya for ruining his (Jeb's) chances for ever becoming president. That, and even in the first Bush 43 administration I remember there was a local conservative radio pundit (Dori Monson) who enjoyed getting haikus, so I gave him one:

    War of dynasties
    Senator Hillary 'gainst
    Governor Jeb Bush

    The thought that this might actually be the case (less the titles) in 2016 is, well, I don't know if it's gratifying or simply ironic. But if Hillary runs, it's going to be a landslide...and the GOP knows it (which is why "Benghazi! Benghazi! Benghazi!")

    Of course. Don't really like to vote for people from political families and prefer a new face but someone who has executive experience over a large state or city would be preferable to someone with basically no executive experience. A governor of a large state like Florida would be preferred over a 25 year Congressmen or a mere department secretary. We need experienced leaders who have actually led SOMETHING at some point.

    Re: Would you vote for Jeb Bush?

    I would not vote for him, but Jeb Bush would be far preferable to an ideologue hack like Ted Cruz from the GOP. I think Jeb is quite intelligent, not only compared to his brother (you can ask Papi and Barb--they'll say the same) but also just in general. I like that quality in a POTUS, though it certainly isn't the most important (especially in GOP primary season).

    I like his willingness to address reality instead of the make believe, xenophobic fairy tale yarn the tea party keeps weaving. Even though I disagree with him fundamentally, I like that he is not some southern fried country bumpkin but instead is of the intelligentsia and a man who has actually led government--not simply tried to tear it down. He's not a puppet like Boehner or dancing on Sheldon Adelsons strings, but is a man who, because of his name and history, can stand on his own and is strong enough to not only call out Obama 47 times, but also call out the crazies on his side of the aisle too. At least, I hope this will be the case.

    I do not much care for the policies of George H.W. Bush. But I can at least appreciate that he was a man who saw the United States as a Great Nation that can accomplish anything it sets its mind too. I would hope his son could, if nothing else, restore that trait to the Republican Party. It's time for the GOP to again "Believe in America."

    Yes, I would. He's been in the go-to category for me, along with the likes of Christie, or someone like Rubio (because he is far too young this round).

    No, I would NOT vote for him. We've had enough experience with that family in the White House. He's not a Conservative either.
