No mas

Although he claims he doesn't know what he wants to do next, Jeb Bush, who just ended eight years as governor of Florida, is said to be considering a run for president at some point in the future. This Times article says it won't be for the 2008 campaign, because of "Bush fatigue," but hints at possibilities down the road.

Here's some unsolicited advice for Jeb: don't even think about it.

Between the mediocrity of his father's tenure, and the absolute catastrophe that has been his brother's reign, Bush fatigue has the half-life of plutonium.

Can you even imagine another Bush in the White House at this point?

Ugh.

The thing that probably eats away at this guy is that he is clearly the smarter of the Bush brothers, and had been considered the political star of the sons. He was the one the old man expected to be president. But Boy George got the honors, and, in six years so far, has managed to poison the family name for a generation.

Maybe one day a grandchild of one of the drunken Bush twins will be able to run for president, but Jeb should forget about it and get into banking or lobbying or some other business where he can cash in on the family name.

To say that Jeb Bush is smarter than W isn't exactly setting the barrier very high! :)
