A man named Jeb

Jeb's in.

And suddenly I don't want to piss on Hillary anymore, since she has the better shot of defeating him. On the other hand, do we really want to see politics devolve into a competition between the Bush and Clinton dynasties? Apparently, quite a few Republicans are less-than-enamored of the idea of another Bush run.

Here's where I think I'll come down: While Hillary may be the stronger candidate against Jeb, we still desperately need someone who will articulate a truly different vision for this country. We need a "nix on neocons" voice. In terms of foreign policy, there's not much space between Hillary Clinton and the Bush clan. Years ago, I would never have written the preceding sentence, but her disastrous turn as Secretary of State was infuriating.

You know, there's an argument to be made that another Bush presidency might destroy the Republican brand name once and for all...

Hate to see Cannonfire casting glances at the "heighten the contradictions" bandwagon.

There would be too much collateral damage in allowing another Bush presidency, even if it did blow up the Republican party.
What difference does it make?
