    I wonder how the country would look if Jeb had been the son groomed for the presidency instead of his brother. Jeb maintains all the conservative values the right stands for, as well as the moderate left, in my humble opinion.

    Listen to him articulate on a variety of issues (operative word articulate). If the Democrats (especially in Congress) can't get their act together by 2012, and the Republicans continue to flail around among the fringe elements of conservatism, I would consider voting for Jeb Bush (voted for his father but not his brother) should he be hinting at going after the spot.

    you obviously didn't see "W", according to Oliver Stone Jeb was the one groomed to be President and the favorite and George Sr was pissed when W decided to run. :)

    He is My personal Favorite of the Bush's. Clearly more Serious and Mature than George. Moe conviction than Dad too.

    There are a lot of myths that Oliver Stone points to as facts.... Stone is a certifiable conspiracy nutjob that does not let facts get in the way of his story telling

    i was unaware that any were groomed for it. you act like they are just animals trained to jump through hoops.

    And I dont for the life of me believe that the left would have loved Jeb any more than George if he won the Presidency.

    I think he would be a fantastic V.P. Choice for the Ticket. Earn some Rep.

    Jeb would have been a better President. He was a decent governor. He's sharper than his brother. I don't think he would have been as malleable.
