    He's been thinking about it since he was Governor of Fl.
    The question is will the Tea party folks put up with him?
    The money guys want him, but he's said nice things about brown people and is in favor of "amnesty" which means anything short of machine guns along the border.
    I think he's just sitting back to see which way the wind will be blowing in the Republican party for 2016.

      They've got maybe a few more months at the MOST to repudiate and eject the Tea Party absolutely, stop blocking every sane measure in the House, reverse course on most of their policies, and start proposing rational measures to improve the lot of most ordinary Americans. That will include rejecting the Ryan budget, renounce efforts to do away with Social Security and Medicare, and pack it in on repealing Obamacare.

      Do you think they will do this by the end of the summer? I see no signs of it. Watch the primary in Oh-14. The incumbent, David "I'm not a moderate but I play one on TV" Joyce has a strong challenge in state rep. Matt Lynch, a rabid, frothy-mouthed teabagger who is setting the district on fire.

      if Lynch wins, there is zero chance the GOP will take a serious look at anyone like Jeb.
