4. Jeb Bush Considers White House Run In 2008?
With seven months to go until the presidential election, some are already discussing a Bush victory in 2008.
Of the many Bush books hitting the shelves is Peter and Rochelle Schweizer's "The Bushes: Portrait of a Dynasty." The new book claims Florida Governor Jeb will likely make a run for older brother W.'s job.
Even if he didn't win he would also make history, as the first candidate to seek the office of the presidency after it was held by both his father and a brother.
He's already made history as the first Republican governor to be re-elected to a second term in Florida, and he did that after the controversy over whether George Bush won Florida.
BusinessWeek reports that Bush donors "have been asked to keep their powder dry" for 2008. And as Jeb's term as governor ends in 2006, he'll have two years to raise campaign funds.
Of course, one of the Gov's staff dismissed the rumor, insisting that Jeb Bush is "focused on running the state."
PS: I couldn't easily find a category for "topic of article" that this would fall under, except, I guess
for RESISTANCE & TACTICS as we'd better get our "resistance" ready and our "tactics" sharpened, IF, and
it is a mighty big IF at that...that this Jebo-character was to try it! It'd be like a circus, ya know?
