‘Like Son Jeb as President’


Former President Bush (there’s currently only one of those!) has endorsed his other governor-son for president. As we await David Paterson’s Caroline Kennedy Senate appointment, I have to think that Jeb for President is not the craziest idea. Jeb for President can’t happen four years from now. But if Jeb Bush runs for the Martinez Senate seat and puts in some hard time there, voters might consider the presidential possibility, even if he would be a third Bush (the media is another story and might make a win impossible). The man is certainly qualified. He’ll demonstrate that he is, nationally, if he spends time in the Senate. Again, it’s just not the craziest idea, and people might come to agree that it’s not two cycles down the road.
