Looks like there's a good chance that Jeb Bush will be the 2016 Republican nominee
. He's the Romney of this go-round: The moneybags candidate who looks moderate and electable when compared to the Tea Party whackadoodles. 2016 may resemble 1992: A Clinton vs. a Bush.
Throughout 2007 and the first part of 2008, I expressed my annoyance with both the Clinton and Bush dynasties -- or, more accurately, with the very concept of a dynasty at play in American politics. But if we must go that route, then let's have a face-off between Hillary and Jeb. Since many libertarian-leaning conservatives have spent the past few years dissing the warmongering legacy of GWB, it'll be interesting to see them rationalize Jeb's effort.
So here's how it plays: Jeb has an albatross around his neck -- an albatross named George. Hillary has an albatross and her
neck -- an albatross named Barack. May the best albatross win!
