The thing about Jeb is, he'd be far-and-away the best pick, if it wasn't for his last name.

Jeb would never have become governor of Florida in the first place if it weren't for his last name.

Do you mean the time he lost in Florida as well?  Or just the times that he won?  He's not popular in Florida?

I'm saying that it's pointless to rue Jeb Bush being held back by his last name when he rode that wave up to his current position. He's got some skills but he never would have risen to the GOP nomination in '94 and '98 if it weren't for his father's 30 years in politics. Live by the family name, die by it.

That's all fine and dandy, but it's the year 2012. That's how I'm gonna operate. The Bush name is now a drawback, not a positive.

The whole point of my original post was basically "his last name shouldn't matter--he is a damn fine politician." And I believe that. He would be a great Vice President.

I think if the qualities are who is best ready to president and has a lot of relevent exeperience, here is my list:

1-jeb bush, managed a large state and is popular with hispanics
2-mitch daniels, managed a large midwest state for 2 terms, and has cabinet experience
3-jon thune, 2 term senator from the midwest
4-jim demint, 2 term southern senator
5-richard burr, 2 term southern senator
6-lamar alexander, 2 term southern senator
7-tim pawlenty, 2 term midwest governor
8-sam brownback, governor and 2 term midwest senator

I think there is a strong chance that someone from this group will be the GOP vice president.

Wolf Blitzer says, last week, Portman or Bush are currently the favorites.

July 2 , 2014

President Obama has topped predecessor George W. Bush in another poll, but not one he would like.

In a new Quinnipiac University Poll, 33% named Obama the worst president since World War II, and 28% put Bush at the bottom of post-war presidents.

OBAMA WORSE THAN DUBYA!  WOW!

Blitzer's one of my favorites, but I strongly disagree with him.

Not really.  Romney does not need a current or ex-governor as his running mate, since either Romney will look like a fool for picking a doofus, or have his own record as governor be outdone by his running mate.  Romney needs to pick someone without gubernatorial experience.

If you want excitement, just choose Sarah Palin again!
Ron Paul or Rand Paul would be an exciting VP!
