you can't be serious!!! Feingold on a ticket would not help one bit I don't think and cetainly anyone could beat Dean....You are suggesting the Democrats do exactly what has killed the Republicans the past 30 years: nominate re-runs....Both parties need to generate new blood.

Though he may not pull the trigger in the end, it is apparent that Bush is seriously considering it. He is clearly getting all the pieces in place for a run.

Is Jeb Bush gearing up for 2016? - The Week

Quote:
Bush has insisted that he’s not going to think about running for president until the middle of next year, but his busy travel schedule and his anti-ObamaCare talking points suggest that he is already laying the groundwork for the primaries. Last week, he was also in New York to speak at a conference hosted by the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association, where he slammed the Affordable Care Act and predicted it would eventually crumple.

In early November, Bush trekked to Wisconsin, where he also told reporters he doesn’t think ObamaCare will work. "If the objective is, don't worry about the budget, we'll just finance it the same way we're financing our deficits right now, build a bigger debt, you could see this thing surviving," he said. "But it will have failed what the promises were. It will have failed the American people. And I don't think it will bend the cost curve."

Bush has long been a favorite of establishment Republicans and deep-pocketed GOP donors who urged him to run for the White House in 2012. He is seen as a strong voice advocating for a humane approach to immigration reform — a stance that puts him at odds with large swaths of the conservative electorate, but ultimately helps him with one of the fastest-growing sectors of the American electorate: Latino voters.

No more Bushes.
No more Clintons.
And for God's sake, NEVER another Obama.

It's time to flush the toilet we call Washington, D.C.

Well, Jeb's son, George P. Bush, is running for Texas land commissioner. It's pretty common knowledge that this is just a stepladder to bigger things in public life, as per the Bush family playbook.

I actually agree with ntwrkguy on this one. We do not need a family dynasty running our country. No more Bushes; no more Clinton's. Obama won't be running again.

Jeb could come out and state a platform that completely aligns with mine and I still wouldn't vote for him.

The Bush name is still toxic waste, without even taking on the dynasty issue. I would think that somewhere in the country there is a politician with Jeb Bush's moderate conservatism that does not have the Bush name.

You could be right, but don't be so sure. A lot of things and feelings are changing. I would support him, but would rather not have a repeat of any family right now. Not, Clinton, Kennedy, Bush or any other. it is totally time for new faces and ideas.
