A Bush too far

Robert Novak considers 2008:

Nationally prominent Republicans are talking to each other about the possibility of getting Florida Gov. Jeb Bush to accept the vice-presidential nomination in 2008 since he has ruled out running for president that year.

Bush probably would be the front-runner for the party’s next presidential nomination if he only had a different last name. GOP politicians agree that five Bush presidential nominations out of the last six campaigns would be one too many for the country to take. But second place on the ticket might be acceptable to voters.

Lovely. Conservative Republicans will no doubt be thrilled to be given the choice between an abortion-friendly woman with no executive experience backed up by yet another Bush, or Hillary Clinton. BECAUSE (basic arithmetic aside) A VOTE FOR [Libertarian candidate] IS A VOTE FOR CLINTON!

Cthulhu 2008!
