Bush Continues to Evince Openess to McCain-Bush '08 Rumors
Gov. Jeb Bush continues to drop hints that he is open to taking the number 2 spot on a Republican Presidential ticket - particularly if the number 1 is Arizona Senator John McCain.

"I like Sen. McCain. I think he's a good guy," Bush told reporters, then adding, "There's all sorts of time to worry about the 2008 election," he said.

In the past, when the number "2008" came up, Bush's knee jerk response was to express absolutely no interest in running for the presidency in two years. Only recently has begun parsing his words and speaking like... a politician.

After having positioned himself as a charismatic maverick six years ago, McCain is now aligning himself as the ultimate Washington insider - by positioning himself as the true heir to the legacy of George W. Bush. Recruiting the President's brother would finalize that transformation.

Why can't Jeb just retire. Eight years have been enough. Just take his money (I'm so sorry that his net worth has gone done and he barely has $1 million) and go into private life.

He needs to learn when to leave the stage.

Are you f**king kidding me? Where the hell do you people come from? Jeb Bush has done more for Florida's economy and, dare I say, for national politics than any 10 democrats throughout all of history (including FDR you cripple-loving freaks!).
