Jenna Bush Hager will be almost two months into being 35 on inauguration day, 2017. i'd vote for it.

Please proceed.

vygramul: I rather like avoiding political dynasties.


Exactly. I really don't want to vote for Clinton, and I hope someone emerges in the next two years that has a decent chance.

I'd still prefer to vote for Warren.

Um. Pass. He helped his brother get elected. No thanks.

vygramul: I rather like avoiding political dynasties.


The Republicans haven't been able to win since WWII without a Bush or Nixon on the ticket.

And I'm really hoping Hillary doesn't run. I just can't get excited about her. Warren would be in the fight of her life. It's too bad Mark Warner isn't better known outside of Virginia. He's moderate enough (and pro-gun enough) that he'd bring in some moderate Republicans that are currently wandering in the wasteland known as RINO country.

I would vote for Reggie Bush. I feel like he's overcome a lot of early hype and expectations that were too big to put together a solid career.

FTFA: I think many righties (but not all) could very grudgingly tolerate Jeb being nominated if he got in reasonably early, paid his dues by enduring a tough campaign, and then presented himself as the only man with enough name recognition to give Hillary a serious run in the general.

Are you kidding? His wife is Mexican. He has the audacity to be fluent in Spanish and has a a degree in Latin American Studies. They are both hardcore Roman Catholics--she's even a member of Regnum Christi. His record may look attractive to the Derpers, but they work on image alone--and that image isn't going to fly with the base.

I'm concerned about Democratic unity.  The finally show unity and spine with the shutdown and now they're preparing to piss it all away on ObamaCare.  My gut says they need to unite behind a candidate early, and Hillary is probably the only candidate who could do that, but I really don't want to see Clinton 2.0.
 
2013-11-13 11:46:36 PM  
He is much too sane to get the nomination. And he is much too boring to fight against the enthusiasm that will be around Clinton and the possibility of electing our first female president.

Christie is their only shot, but I think he will have a tough time getting the 'baggers to back him.

Not to mention this:

"I'm Jeb Bush."

"Aren't you the one who flipped the 2000 Election towards your own brother, who then proceeded to destroy our economy?"

"Yup."

The stain of Dubya will not fade that much in the foreseeable future.

Oh, sorry, I see "oh, hell no" has already been covered.

Yeah....that ain't gonna happen. The Bush name is poison now. During the last 2 elections, the GOP avoided saying his name whenever possible like he was f*cking Voldemort.

Guntram Shatterhand: The stain of Dubya will not fade that much in the foreseeable future.


Derpers forgot everything that happened under W the second Obama was sworn in. The revisionist history machine has been cranked up into high gear. Many Fark Independents who were too embarrassed to admit they were ever Republicans have already changed their tunes. Hell, the first "Miss Me Yet" post was  made before Dubya even left the White House. If it wasn't against the Constitution, they'd put W on the ballot again. He wouldn't win the general  election but he'd be a credible threat to be the GOP nominee. Many of them would vote for him not because they think he was a good president but because it'd be a chance to "stick it to the liberals" which is what's most important in life.

They can't do it. Bush's mistakes were mostly the reason why they lost 2008 as well as the GOP's weak way of trying to explain that they could do better with a new Republican president. Yes, it will appeal to the far-right but the people outside of that wouldn't want a repeat.

FuryOfFirestorm: Yeah....that ain't gonna happen. The Bush name is poison now. During the last 2 elections, the GOP avoided saying his name whenever possible like he was f*cking Voldemort.


2008 was really like that. They usually blamed the Democratic majority of Congress or other outside elements while fearmongering what would happen if the US voted blue this time.

Barbara Jr. wants Hillary to run.

I bet Jeb couldn't even get the nomination, without some serious f*ckery going on behind the scenes. Rovian f*ckery, that is.

It mattered before his primary win was inevitable.

I went to high school and college with Jenna. It's been odd watching her look more and more like her dad every year.


That said, Barbara is looking pretty nice these days.

will never happen...Dubya assured that. This political family is finished politically.

There's 300 some odd million of us, and we're gonna do a Bush vs a Clinton again. Neat.

2013-11-14 12:25:19 AM  
Just like Obama ran against W. in 2008 and not McCain, the Republicans will be running against Obama in 2016, and not the Democratic candidate. Jeb just isn't dynamic enough. He isn't up to the task. Also, any appeals Jeb makes to the teabaggers will come off as forced and insincere.

Reagan had a Bush on the ticket.  Doesn't have to be the top slot.
