who is most likely to end up being the republican candidate in case of a brokered convention?
Bush fatigue notwithstanding -- a good guess....I guess 57 is a low estimate?
Yes, I think poor Jeb would be afflicted by his name, although I hear he has way more smarts than his bro. I know that most Floridians have a high opinion of Jebbie, but I don't really know much about him. Perhaps I need to be conducting some research!
Not this Floridian ..... but that is to be expected.....
They would need to sell him as GW's smarter brother, the one who was supposed to be on the path to the White House until his alcoholic, partying brother got in the way. For Jeb to have a shot at winning they'd have to convince people this wouldn't be another round of George Bush or George W. Bush, whose administrations aren't held in very high regard by liberals or moderates.
I guess there's a chance after the republican party hits bottom, after the 2012 election and if the results are bad enough for them and the adults manage to retake control of the party and the right wing nuts and the teapartiers are send to the dark little corner where they belong , and they realize that with 90 percent of the minority vote against them there's no hope of winning a national election that jeb bush can be the figure that the party can rally around to come back from the wilderness.
yes I'm sure he wants to kick his brother's xxx for that.

Who do you really want to run as the Republican candidate? I am a liberal, and I support Obama, so I think I would prefer Bachmann or Palin, or both. What about you?
