Clinton + Bush = love?

W., doing a pretty good job at playing P.R. catch up on the Asian tsunami disaster, has appointed Bill and GHWB to be goodwill ambassadors for the good 'ol USA. Besides throwing his dad a bone, he also gets to co-opt the democratic opposition's stance by making Clinton his mouthpiece. And Clinton, out of election season, has chosen to accept instead of chastising from the sidelines. Also, W. sent his most popular (and that's not saying much) cabinet Sectretary, Colin Powell, and brother Jeb to help coordinate the relief. Why Jeb? Oh, he's got TONS of bad weather experience, what with those 3 nasty hurricanes (73 deaths!). Also, maybe just a smidge to do with getting some pub, some exposure, some ink and looking, oh, what's the word....presidential? Let's review. Jeb is the republican govenor of Florida. So he nails down all the red states with Florida probably in the bag too. That leaves...OHIO! It's a very attractive scenario to anyone who wants the repubs in power again. The toughest part will be getting the nomination. So lets see if Jeb finds religion in the next four years and cozies up to the fundies. I'm betting he does.

I don't think he is going to run. We've had a Bush run four out of the last five elections. I think they will go with someone else. I think there are other republican candidates that have been waiting in the wings. I also can't imagine him running with the state his brother is going leave us in by '08. D

Donny- just remember that no matter how bad the economy in 2008, it will be all Clinton's fault.

The neo-cons would love another Bush, but Jeb doesn't have the fundie roots that W has and it is too late to jump on the bandwagon. Bill Frist has swallowed the neo-con tonic and he has a long record as a fundie. I can't see how he doesn't get the nomination considering the bully pulpit he has and the fact that he already has started running. The only hope may be the McCain Train. Those two will collide and split the party. And just when you think it is over it gets better.

By the way, that was posted by me. I just forgot to check off my name instead of anonymous.

Oh, Ricky, so quick to take credit for someone else's work. Tsk, tsk...
