I'm going to have to take issue with my favorite cajun and tell him to go ahead and smoke some more of whatever he's got there.
Because I simply cannot fathom the circumstances under which another Bush should ever be supported in a run for the presidency. How does one, in looking for a brilliant stepping stone to the highest office in the land, point to a governorship in which your state's irregularities resulted in an unprecedented electoral nightmare resulting in your own brother's questionable victory--among other Floridian insanities and inanities?
I'm gonna say no to my man James. What do you all think?
Democratic strategist and CNN analyst James Carville tossed out a provocative idea during a panel discussion on politics Tuesday. At CNN's America Votes 2008 Breakfast, the chief architect of Bill Clinton's successful 1992 presidential run predicted that former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush will be the Republican nominee in 2008. Jeb is a younger brother of President Bush.
Carville bolstered his prediction, highlighting Jeb Bush's career: He was a successful governor of a large state, he enjoys the support of social conservatives, he speaks Spanish, and "he's somebody the party could rally around," Carville said. "There is nobody in this field who can rally the Republican Party; he's the only person in America that can do it," he added.
