Does the U.S. really want another Bush?

Some might say that this is typical Democratic nitpicking and that it is really Bush’s strategy and vision that counts; while I would agree that this is a little bit of nitpicking, I think the next most interesting poll question has not been asked yet. Let me suggest that poll question: “As you may have heard, Jeb Bush, brother of former President George W. Bush, is running for president in 2016. Jeb Bush has announced his eight-member foreign policy team, seven of which advised his brother to go to war with Iraq and how to conduct that war. Having heard this, are you more or less likely to vote for Jeb Bush for president?”

If we are to believe the Republican establishment and the Washington commentariat, the country is more likely to support him. 

Maybe they’re right — maybe the country is longing for a restoration of the policies and people of George W. Bush’s administration. 

But something deep inside my gut says, not so fast.
