Does he need that many?

A brazilian dollars, I assume, which is what it'll take to get anyone to vote for him after 2000-2008.

Even if his last name wasn't Bush, Jeb's political career was done after he directed the entire state government to keep a brain dead woman alive against her last wishes.

WTF Indeed: Even if his last name wasn't Bush, Jeb's political career was done after he directed the entire state government to keep a brain dead woman alive against her last wishes.


Exactly this.
The Schiavo fiasco should weight down any future political machinations like an anchor.  That ordeal was a massive cluster fark of government overreach.

But isn't he already married to a Mexican?

He was listening to the stupid farks over at St. Thomas More.  His wife probably had alot to do with it - she's incredibly devout and Jeb has been sucking up to the Catholics since forever.  I remember we would have a "Red Mass" at the start of legislative session and he'd be there glad-handing and generally treating it like a campaign event instead of a religious service.  St. Thomas is kind of his unofficial campaign headquarters.

Jeb can survive Schiavo, unfortunately.  They did a great job of setting up Mel Martinez to absorb all the bad juju.

He's already rich enough.

I think you are drastically underestimating both the capacity of conservatives to overlook inconvenient events like that - especially since they probably agree with his actions - and the strengths Jeb Bush would have in a general election.

He's the popular former governor of the swingiest of swing states. He's a scion of a well-known and well-connected political family, which will give him an advantage in fundraising. He's kept his head down for the past few years and remains untarnished by the Tea Party and other Republican extremism. He's popular among immigrants and is the best positioned politician in the GOP, other than Marco Rubio, to bridge that gap. He's well-positioned to appeal to both the moderate and extreme elements of his own party; that in and of itself would endear him to independents.

Jeb Bush can win the primary, and would be a very dangerous opponent in the general. Democrats and liberals cannot underestimate him.

And an incredible blow against family values. The state chose parents over the woman's husband - with no real evidence to do so. In essence, they nullified traditional marriage.

Is this why Dubya was always clearing brush?

Use it to exploit the non-white Hispanic vote.

The guy has access and connections that's all that matters. The man would be a fool to not run. Rubio has proved to be a dumbass Jeb's wife is the closest thing the repubs can come to having a "minority" candidate.

I don't have the will left in me for another President Bush.

I don't think anybody is underestimating him.  I think the Democrats are hoping that he is serious so 2000-2008 can be rehashed, along with all that 'no more dynasties' rhetoric that the Republicans used dishonestly to prepare for a Hilary run.  And I think the Republicans are panicking because there's no way to make him a viable candidate to a multitude of factors they cannot deal with.  Notice how Dubya doesn't exist until a slow news cycle when people try to unsuccessfully rewrite history then fades a week later because they can't?

Jeb won't run because he's got a ton of baggage, and Romney's failed presidential attempt shows the Republicans do not know how to defend a candidate.  And showing how they're dealing with the Dubya library ("He's got a different opinion on his presidency than you, so deal with it") just shows what a Jeb presidential run would look like: more declarative nonsense to a country that is tired of rich kids wanting positions of power.
