I agree with your advice in general, but not because of Jeb Bush. I am starting to view JEB as the Rudy of this election cycle.
Whether or not Rudy could have been a formidable candidate or not last time is debatable. What is not debatable is his unusual strategy of not running until the Florida primary did not work out for him. I think JEB is making a similar mistake to Rudy, but running from the base. I think his results might end up being just as impressive as Rudy’s were when he ran.
