    I still think this is the way it will end up.

    I think Rubio and Walker have a good chance on the Republican side. Isn't Rubio a more charismatic version of Bush that could also pull in Florida in the General? I see him as the Republican's 2008 Obama: he is a young, well-spoken Senator.

    And I do think there is a chance Bernie Sanders can win the Democratic presidential nomination. His town-hall style approach meshes well with Iowa and New Hampshire's political scene. I know his numbers in Iowa right now are not even close to Hillary Clinton's, but the sparks are there and I think he can catch fire. If he somehow wins Iowa and New Hampshire, the establishment Democrats are going to go berserk.

    I think it will be another cycle yet for Rubio and Walker. Both are a little new and green. I think both have potential, but it will be 2020.

    Rubio pull in Florida?
    Nope.
    He's not too popular down here anymore.

    "The poll also shows Florida voters are generally satisfied with their two U.S. senators. Forty-seven percent approve of Republican Sen. Marco Rubio's handling of his job and 35 percent disapprove, while 44 percent said he deserves a second term in 2016. Rubio, a potential candidate for President, has not yet announced whether he will seek a second term next year."

    You do not think Rubio could beat Bush or Clinton or Bernie Sanders in Florida?

    Rubio is scary. I think he has a chance to go far.

    Well if the 2016 election does end up with Jeb Bush vs. the hapless Hillary ho, I am not going to have any viable choice but to vote for Jeb Bush since he would be the lesser of two evils.
