    I think you're forgetting the ads that would run during the Republican primary. Those would be run by Republicans.

    I doubt there will be any of those.

    You think his primary challengers are going to run ads blasting him for the Terri Schiavo situation?

    If people are stupid enough to vote for Hillary because they think they're casting a 3rd vote for her husband, then that's just pathetic, but no surprise actually. The number of clueless voters in this country shouldn't surprise anyone.
    So you support Bush's invasion of Iraq too? Jeb is the same as his brother on foreign policy. He will get us into more quagmires that make us less safe.

    Because he isn't in power and has stopped making a fool of himself.

    GW had the worst job creation in modern history and his invasion of Iraq is deemed a mistake by most Americans. You can't put lipstick on a pig.

    what causes you to be so certain of this
    unlike dubya, jeb will not have darth cheney whispering into jeb's ear encouraging him to do what his father did not: topple saddam
    why do you believe jeb is a clone of his intellectually unchallenged brother ... especially regarding foreign policy

    we will have to choose between hillary or jeb
    if we are fortunate, hillary will bow out and we can elect Elizabeth Warren
    Hillary has a much better chance at being the 1st women President. Warren can be the 2nd though.

    Clinton left with 65% approval ratings despite a scandal plagued presidency. I don't think people will disqualify Hillary because of her husband. She was pretty close to winning the nomination in 08.

    Don't be so sure about Jeb. He is running around talking just like a neocon as we speak.

    Although he rarely comments on foreign policy, Bush has appeared particularly unwilling to push back against the neoconservatives who supported his brother's administration, at times echoing their complaints about the Obama administration's foreign policy. In February 2010, for example, Bush told Newsmax that he didn't think "the military option should ever be taken off the table" with respect to Iran, adding in November that the Obama administration's policies toward the country had "empower[ed] bad behavior in Tehran." Bush also mused that "sheer ineptitude and incompetency and corruption will bring down the [Hugo] Chavez regime" in Venezuela, "but we can't sit back passively and let this happen naturally." Instead, Bush advocated offering U.S. support to "elements of Venezuelan society that are fighting back against" the democratically elected Chavez, who eventually died of cancer in early 2013 after being resoundingly reelected.[15] Bush has also stood by his support for the 2003 invasion of Iraq, telling CNN in March 2013: "A lot of things in history change over time. I think people will respect the resolve that my brother showed, both in defending the country and the war in Iraq."[16] At one point in the late 1990s, Bush seemed to have been considered a potentially more influential political ally than his brother by the neoconservatives who founded the Project for the New American Century (PNAC). Commenting on the signatories to PNAC's 1997 founding statement of principles, Jim Lobe and Michael Flynn wrote, "Ironically, virtually the only signatory who has not played a leading role since the letter was released has been Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who in 1997 apparently looked to [William] Kristol and [Robert] Kagan more presidential than his brother George."[17] -
