    This explains why some influential Republicans persist in believing that Mr. Bush might still make a strong candidate in 2012. He is a favorite of the anti-establishment crowd (he is said to have mentored Marco Rubio, the Senate challenger in Florida who gave the Tea Partiers a national lift), but he is also a political celebrity with a pronounced independent streak. As governor, for instance, Mr. Bush strongly opposed drilling in the shallow waters off Florida, and he favors increasing legal immigration, rather than restricting it.

    DONT EVEN THINK ABOUT IT.
    Americans will never be burned by the Bush's again.

    The Bamster has lowered the bar dramatically for future presidents.

    Anyone with a pulse can now be considered for the job. And you Dems who voted for him are to blame for that.

    I didn't mind G. H. W. Bush but couldn't stand G.W. after a few years. I'd give Jeb consideration. However, my guess is that the far right's present sentiment against an inclusionary "Big Tent" approach to the Republican party limits Jeb's chances much more than his name does.

    Wait a minute, Nobody can out blame Kerry, he was born pointing the finger, it's in his DNA. To defeat Obama one only needs to unplug the teleprompter. ;)

    Jeb is my favorite Bush, yet there has been far too much rolling over in the past, from that family. NWO types should be disqualified on principle. George ruined it for him, unless maybe he served at Cabinet level for a while and proved himself. Constitution and Reason before lame excuses. I want an American for President, not an Americant. I do not always drink beer, but when I do I prefer Dos Equies.
