    Actually, I worry about his inexperience.

    He's just got into position as the governor of New Jersey, and, as far as I know, he doesn't have any experience on the federal level. I would actually support him once he gets more experience. Part of me is hoping that after his stint as governor that he's either elected to Congress or he gets appointed to a federal executive department to get more experience on the federal level. Then he'd be a tough candidate for the Democrats to beat.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    In 1946 Richard Nixon was first voted into the House of Representatives. In 1950 he was elected to the Senate. In 1952 and 1956 he was elected as Vice President on the Republican ticket with Dwight D. Eisenhower as President. This set him up as the natural successor as the Republican candidate for President in 1960.

    He lost to John F. Kennedy. He tried to make a comeback in the 1962 election for the California governorship. However, he had little interest in it and he was criticized for the possibility of treating it as a stepping stone to the White House. He lost. He then said that he was leaving politics for good.

    He ran for the Presidency in 1968 and won. He was elected to a second term in 1972.

    You're right - it certainly does.

    I voted for Jeb three times during his run for Governor of Florida. He is the only Republican governor of Florida, which became a state in 1845, to have served two full four-year terms. I would vote for Christie if Bush was not a candidate.

    This was an easy vote for me. I chose Paul Ryan.

    I agree about the Bush name. I've heard enough Bush bashing to last a lifetime (though it continues on). Let's not add another to the mix.
    I keep hearing things about Christy (That he is not a conservative like we've been led to believe) I don't care enough to go looking to see if any of it is true.
    Catawa is my favorite bleeding heart liberal.

    I think Jeb Bush is by far the best Bush politician. Unfortunately, due to his relatives' legacies, I don't think the 2012 election cycle provides enough separation for him to stand on his merit.

    The "best" of a horrible lot...is still not good. This country cannot afford another Bush.
