Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush
Jeb would threaten to overshadow Republicans’ attempt to remake the party with younger, fresher names at the top.
No, he wouldn’t just threaten it; he’d downright torpedo it.
If it’s a choice between running a Jindal headline or a Bush headline, which do you think editors would choose?
If it’s a choice between a meme about Susana Martinez or Jeb Bush, whom do you think the internet will choose?
And even if Jeb is perfectly harmless to the party as a primary candidate (which is a massive and improbable “if”), what if he actually wins?
What if the new, fresher GOP picks a “Bush” to be its figurehead? There’s an old 8-track of Marty Robbins in your grandpa’s car that’s more relevant.
