    What's the success rate of wives of successful husbands running for office in the US? I'm only familiar with a couple on the Republican side - Dole had a cup of coffee in the Senate and Bono in the House, and I know many wanted Laura Bush to run for office but she smartly declined. Any on the Democrat side besides the carpetbagging Clintons?

    not elected office, but Eleanor Roosevelt was quite a politician in her own right
    her UN activities we're very advanced for the times
    and history has not been kind to women who might have pursued a political career. it is a very recent possibility. so, how few we have had previously is not a good indicator of those who may emerge going forward

    I can't say I see this as personal to Bush so much as taking action as a Governor, applying the law in his state as it existed, but I don't know all the details and based on some of the comments here in this thread I don't know if many of us really do know all the details - seems pretty contentious from both sides.

    TALLAHASSEE - Gov. Jeb Bush on Monday strongly endorsed issuing state
    driver's licenses to illegal immigrants... Hundreds of thousands of
    people could be affected by the proposal, which is currently making
    its way through the Florida Legislature. Sen. Rudy Garcia, a Hialeah
    Republican pushing the measure in the Senate, says it would enable
    those stuck in immigration limbo to drive with valid licenses and get
    insurance while they work to become citizens. "Our roads and streets
    will be safer because of this," Garcia said...

    I'd say the difference, perhaps minor to some, is that it is a State taking action affecting only that one State and it was a popular move in the State at the time. That's different from an imposition from the Federal level that affects all States whether they want it or not.

    Sorry, by one foul swoop, or state by state, I don't want illegals getting drivers licenses. That's the most overt tempt I've ever seen from you to diminish the results of a right winger doing the same thing as a left winger. And this guy could be Americas next president, and he favours giving illegals drivers licenses. Colossal fail CJ!

    LOL that didn't work in the 90's and it won't work now. Bill Clinton left office with the highest approval ratings of any modern President.

    I think you and Grant are to the right of the right most American poster at DP. Are there many of you guys up there?

    He also favor a path to citizenship for illegals and you will either vote for him or stay home. Either way Hillary wins easily.

    Jeb would be a formidable candidate.

    I've only voted for an establishment candidate once. And I regret that. It would tickle me to see the independents, who out number either party alone, join together and elect an independent candidate and force the elephant and the ass to set one out and see if that didn't get their attention. Seriously, I can't believe that there aren't more people that would like to see that play.
