According to a recent poll, Jeb Bush, the former Florida governor who just happens to be brother of George W. Bush, leads the field of potential candidates for the Republican nomination for President in Alabama. Gov. Bush got the support of almost 20 percent of the poll responders. Kentucky Senator Rand Paul was second with 10.5 percent, followed by Dr. Ben Carson (a Maryland physician) with 12.6 percent and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie with 8.8 percent. The man I hope runs, because of the entertainment value, Governor Rick Perry of Texas, received 7.2 percent. He was followed by Senator Ted Cruz with 5.6 percent. The rest of the votes went to former Senator Rick Santorum, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, and Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker.
I am not at all surprised that Jeb Bush polls well in Alabama. I believe that he will be a strong national candidate if he decides to run. I have always believed that this brother was the best “politician” in the family. But that assessment doesn’t include the “Bush women.” Clearly, Barbara Bush was the best of the lot, followed closely by Laura Bush.
