It looks like the money is going to Rubio. Which candidate is the Tea Party going to rally behind? It will kill me if we divide our vote again.

Possible scenario: Rubio takes the forefront (for the conservatives, of course, but ignore his amnesy push) into the primaries to fend off the half-dozen other 'conservatives' who show up. After a few bloodbaths and several of the 'conservatives' drop out, jBush steps up and becomes the annointed one. [Rubio, being the good little soldier, and being younger, will get his chance later -- 2024 or so.]

The next 'it's his turn' guy is Jeb -- if he wants it. And he has been making some noise in that direction.

The 'conservatives' will be splintered again, unless they wise up real soon -- which they won't. Look at the many GOP frontrunnter threads from 2012, each one to falter soon thereafter: Bachmann, Perry, Trump, Cain, Gingrich, Santorum, and finally, resulting in Romney, who lost the general.

I'd like to see the Establishment push Jeb. Conservatives are done with the Bushes.

If Sarah ran, she could have knocked out Romney. So rallying behind a single conservative is possible.

I see a race divided between Ryan, Rubio, Paul and possibly the new doctor guy.
