    I'd consider it, yes. Judging by a last name only or voting in protest against a supposed "political dynasty" is foolish.

    Would you vote for Jeb Bush?
    Joko...aren't you in Florida? If you are, were you there when Jeb was governor? If yes to that...what kind of governor do you rate him at? Bad OK Good Very Good Great?

    Or is anybody in this thread from Florida who can respond to the above?

    Re: Would you vote for Jeb Bush?

    I voted for Jeb Bush 3 times when he ran for Governor of Florida. His first campaign he lost to Lawton "Cracker" Chiles in a close race. The next two he won. He is the first Republican to serve two four-year terms as Governor of Florida.

    His wife Columba is Mexican and he has a different approach to immigration than most Republicans. He is non-Hispanic and completely fluent in Spanish. He can swing independents because he's likeable and has a great record as Governor. If he can win twice in Florida as a Republican Governor I think he can win the presidency.

    I would vote for him again in a heart beat.

    Re: Would you vote for Jeb Bush?

    While many two-term governors leave office with slumping favorability ratings, Governor Bush enjoys favorability ratings of 63 percent among Floridians. Governor Bush proposed and signed into law meaningful education, spending and taxation, health care, and environment policies that have set a transformative course for the state.
    IMO Jeb is the best politician in his family. When's the last time a governor left after two terms with a 63% favorability rating? Remember, Florida is considered a swing state.

    Governor Jeb Bush: A Record of Leadership and Policy Accomplishment | Washington Policy Center

    Education
    Governor Bush is often referred to as Florida’s “education governor.” He is a long-time champion of school choice. Prior to his election, he founded Liberty City Charter School in Miami, which was Florida’s first public charter school.
    “When I left office there were 223,000 more Florida students reading successfully and 234,000 more students doing math on grade level or higher than when I became governor. Their progress and increased chances for a successful future are what I am most proud of.”
    Jeb Bush
    Liberty City is Miami's poorest black neighborhood. What does Hillary have to offer in terms of successful public education reform, Bill's "midnight basketball" program?

    I've heard it said, by someone who knew both men, that Jeb was the smarter Bush by far than Dubya.


    Nonetheless I do not particularly favor him for the Repub candidate.


    If the choice ends up being Jeb or Hillary, then yes I will vote for him... mainly just to keep Hillary out of the white house.
