    Presidential Race: Bush vs. Clinton

    I realize it is way way too early to predict who will win their party's nomination. But it seems to me that the mainstream media wants Jeb Bush to be the Republican nominee. They seem to be promoting his candidacy. They would love to have the matchup because it would be a money maker for them. A presidential heavy weight fight.

    Here are the polling options:

    Your theory is bunk
    Your theory is correct but the matchup won't happen
    Your theory is correct and the matchup WILL happen
    I am entering my own prediction

    You're ignoring that they simply don't have much to choose from at the moment.

    As for your theory itself, doesn't seem left field to me at all.

    After listening to comments from Republican party high-up's and reading the tea leaves.... I believe Jeb Bush will get the Republican nomination ONLY IF Clinton looks like a shoe-in for the Democratic nomination.

    In their heart of hearts, I believe most Republicans and Conservatives would rather have new blood representing the party, however the only candidate that can beat Clinton is Bush, so they will do what it takes to win the presidency.

    I wonder whether all this news about Bill Clinton possibly cavorting with underage prostitutes will surface and cause Hillary to drop out of the race, though. Part of me hopes that it does. I would rather see an Elizabeth Warren vs Ted Cruz matchup, or something to that effect, rather than two legacy heavyweights going at it.

    There's a lot of time yet. But the way it's looking, I would put my money on Bush beating Clinton and becoming our next Prez.

    Here's Peggy Noonan's WSJ piece: Sorry, Jeb, the Race Is Wide Open - WSJ

    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.

    I think the White House has had all the four letter words it can endure. As for Hilary, her creation of the ongoing disaster in Libya reveals enough about her ignorance that she is unlikely to get the nod. Keep in mind she was hornswoggled by a neophyte community organizer in a recent campaign. Some other flunkies owned and operated by the current neo-con octopus will emerge as the new media darlings. I pray that Warren, Sanders, Ron Paul, or any genuine representative can get a toehold in our gov't, but it is damn unlikely. The only hope is a coherent and organized third party to throw the fascist/NWO/CorpGOV scoundrels out. Pull the toilet plug on the banks and start over, without them.

    The Confederacy will not be revived by Ron Paul, who is an old irrelevancy, and Col. Sanders died a long time ago.

    Most likely Republicans will go through another 30 or 40 candidates and tear each other apart. Probably the eventual nominee hasn't even announced yet.

    I predict that the loser with the most votes will still be a loser.

    I hope that he has a car elevator to play with.

    I think whoever runs against Bush will win. A lot of true conservatives will not be motivated to vote for liberal/moderate Bush. That includes me.
