The Corner

The one and only.

Run Jeb, Run


An e-mail:
“If Jeb Bush is the strongest candidate and best qualified to be president, Republicans must insist that he run. The “dynastic” issue is more of a mental block than a deterrent to actually being elected. I cannot think of a single person who would have otherwise voted for George W. except for his father’s service, can you? If Hillary makes an even half-hearted attempt to seek the presidency, she will have the same criticisms directed at her. If the Dems come sniping after Jeb because of his family ties, how can they justify any degree of support for Hillary?

Besides, George P. will be turning 40 in 2016 and he needs dad to smooth the transition to the next generation.

Bush 2008! Bush 2012! Bush 2016 Bush 2020! Etc.”
