Yes - in the primary to be the Republican candidate
Yes - for president in the general election.
Not likely in the Republican Primary
Not likely for President
No - not the Bush dynasty
I would vote for Jeb Bush over a democrat in the general election
He's a RINO - so disfavor him
He's a RINO - so he is one of the better Republicans
Another Bush for president? You GOT to be joking!

Wouldn't vote for him at all.
I'm totally done with milquetoast "compassionate conservative" Republicans. I want a smaller government with MUCH less consolidated power and Bush isn't going to provide that. Neither is Christie or Ryan.
As far as I'm concerned the Federal government is totally out of control and has become more a hindrance to this nation than a help. We need to pass more power back to the states and the people of the states. To that end the most important elections are the state and local elections as well as the elections for congress.
Jeb running for national office will have a massive challenge with finding a post Bush voice in the GOP. I think he will have obstacles in trying to separate himself from his brother, without offending his brother or inviting him to the RNC, not wanting his endorsement, etc. Big time family drama.
If he can pull it all off, it will be amazing, but comics will poke fun.
I don't think he is in a easy place, politically or personally.
Bush is in the running because he was invited to Vegas with three other governors; a stubborn GOP belief to have a governor again.
His Immigration comments are a double-edged sword, chop from the Dems and bring back reluctant GOPs .

While I do appreciate his stance on illegal immigration, I would, under no circumstances, vote for him for anything. I've had enough Bush to last 10 lifetimes. Plus, I remember the side he fell on during the Schiavo debacle, and that left a horrible taste in my mouth.
Besides, if I vote for Bush, I wouldn't have a vote left for Hillary!

I would prefer Ron Paul winning the primary. I think some of his opinions and stances are a little out there, but he is the best in running the neocons out and deconsolidating the power of the government and federal reserve. His son is a little too close to the Evangelica wing for me.
I do wonder just what Jeb's position on immigration would be if he didn't have a chava at home.
I'd have to hear about his other positions before saying one way or another. I'd say a more moderate CON would be welcomed with open arms by a majority of Americans, though pretty sure not by those in the GOP primary process.
Oh well, not my sack of rocks to carry....
