CuriousJockAZ saidAs for Jeb Bush, I think he deserves to be judged on his own merit. However, if Hillary runs the end result will probably be a foregone conclusion regardless of who the GOP puts out there.
Jeb would have been the ideal candidate for president in 2000 and a vast improvemnet over the bush we got. but as his mother has already apologized to him: " it should have been you" his time was then not now.
In fact i'm not sure why he'd even want it, the powers that be are fashioning the government they want through K street, and buying congress, not the oval office. all that's needed is an ineffectual president who will stay out of the way and cede power to the party ( much like his brother did ) .
Jeb has family money and the kind of power no president would ever have simply by title of office. To him it would only be a vanity post, and a massive amount of unwelcome scrutiny.
