Interesting article on Jeb Bush. Interesting even to me - and I'm a Democrat.


Jeb Bush is more ruthless than he looks, more conservative than moderates like to believe, and possibly more appealing to Latinos than Marco Rubio.

Nickname.


John Ellis Bush.


Any one who didn't know what the theme of the article is hasn't been paying attention.

Another good book on Jeb is Jeb: America's Next Bush, by S.V. Date.

Good look into his personality and drive - he's more similar to his big brother, Dubya, than you think - in terms of policy similarities, fierce competitiveness and the will to win by any means.

I know! He is showing his true tough guy in Euope now. Seems he called Putin a "Bully", that's almost up to the level of "Meanie"...
