    The family name, he said, remains a powerful draw. “They love the Bush family,” Mr. Wynn said. “They love the whole package, and they feel Jeb is just a part of the package.”
    Do they, now?
    In a sign of how quickly the Bush world is coalescing around a Jeb Bush run, George W. Bush publicly encouraged him to enter the field in an interview with CNN on Thursday. “I hope Jeb runs,” he said, adding playfully, “Hey, Jeb, if you need some advice, give me a call.”
    Yeah, Jeb! Give your miserable failure Brother a call!

        I think that if Jeb gets in, he beats Christie easily.  The Hard-Right will give Jeb a pass that they won't give to any other moderate GOP candidate - a pass they never would have given Christie.  The two of them in together will crowd out the Cruz-Crazies, and will give the GOP primary a neo-moderate feel that 2012 never had.

        Jeb also gets a pass on being rich, which Romney didn't get.  Jeb is also so mild mannered.  It's going to be hard to make Jeb into the devil.  

        Hillary beats Jeb now, that she is out of the spotlight and laying low.  Remember the lesson from 2008,...the more people see of Hillary, the less people like her.  In addition to being a conservadem, her style can be shrill and grating.  If Jeb runs, Hillary is still the favorite, but he can win.  If it's anybody but Hillary, Bush III might just get off the ground.
