Bush is next in line. Florida, speaks Spanish, brother won re-election. Kasich as vp in Ohio would help.
There’s more. Christie is up for next November. Don’t discuss plans to take him out too early because he could run as a Democrat. If he ran as a Rat for the WH in 2016 I could live with that.
Conservatives have held their noses twice now and voted for McCain & Romney to try to avoid a greater evil .... and lost. With this election, the GOPe has well and truly lost their 'nose-holding' base ..... fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me. No more GOPe wins in the future because I don't think they'll change course (already people are throwing Jeb Bush's name around so that tells me all I need to know). "Avoiding a greater evil" as a reason to vote for poor moderate, squishy candidates won't turn out the base in the future - evil is already here.
