    Jeb Bush is more a Democrat than a Republican

    I'm not even a little bit interested in Jeb Bush and am thinking about the opinion that Republicans want someone who's Churchillian:

    Republicans this year are not looking for Reagan. They’re looking for Churchill. They’re looking for the guy who knows the war is already here, not the guy who knows the war can be averted if we defeat the guys who would wage it. What is “the war”? Everything from scarily sluggish economic growth to long-term liabilities and deficits; from the melting away of the post-World-War-II order to the Mideast to domestic terrorism. Every four years there is frustration and argument; this year there is urgency.
    There is always urgency. I've seen calls of doom from the GOP since the early 80's where "the next election was the most critical in our nations history"...every two years like clock-work.

    Noonan is the consummate conservative optimist. Of course the field is wide open, it always is years out from an election. Pre-primary is like Baseball's spring training...every team is a contender.

    The reality is big money donors and who they choose to put their money behind. When a candidate say they are exploring a run...what they really mean is ...Were seeing if we can get some big money wrapped up.

    Good luck in your primaries GOP.

    Politics the real "Moneyball"

    Re: Presidential Race: Bush vs. Clinton

    Hilary Clinton would have the best president of my lifetime at her side and I think they will make that a selling point for her candidacy, that and I don't believe the democrats have a lot of strong leaders willing to run currently. Republicans however, there are plenty that I can think of that are willing to run but the problem with the Republicans is that there will be a lot of fighting amongst themselves to get down to the real candidate. Despite what many on this board or talk radio would say, the Republican nominee will have to be more moderate. A fight between Bush and Clinton would get particularly nasty but Clinton would ultimately win.

    I don't know what theory is being espoused here, but if Jeb Bush decides to run, he will win the nomination - I have no doubts.

    Secondly, I don't know that Clinton is running - she's currently in the witness protection program following her disastrous book tour - but I hope she does run and the Democrats are foolish enough to nominate her.

    Finally, unlike some are predicting here, I believe that if the race is between Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton, there will be a far higher turn out by the social and fiscal right than in recent elections all to ensure that Bill and Hillary Clinton do not get the chance to stain the White House once again.

    I'm not sure if you are joking or being serious. Where on earth does it say she is in witness protection?

    What was her last public appearance?

    What has she contributed to the debate on the war on terror? I don't see support for her former boss, support he needs from his former SofS.

    In fact we don't see anything about Hillary in the positive at all, we see lots about Bush, and Scott Walker, but what does Hillary have to say about jobs for terrorists?

    The only mentions of the aging and irrelevant are from the Obama lemmings who see their dream turning to compost before their eyes and turn to the only hope they have, an over 70, tired and unhealthy looking woman whose only claim to fame is having been married to a philandering husband. The fact she will have Bill around is likely why many Democrats will run.

    She still has to get past what her real enemy will throw at her, and Obama plays mean and dirty.

    So please, where is Hillary Clinton and what does she stand for?

    That part is a joke based on observation. Have you seen her in the news or heard a word spoken by her since her infamous book tour? For someone who's supposedly on the road to the Presidency, she sure is in hiding. Maybe she's at a fat farm getting toned for a new line of pantsuits or studying with Betty White to perfect being vital into your 90s.
