    I kind of feel sorry for Jeb Bush. He's obviously very learned on political issues. Very articulate and level headed. From every thing I've read he did a very good job as governing Florida. Seems like a decent human being. Stood up for himself in last night's debate.

    I'm wondering if he was not tied to his father and brother and his last name were something like Williams or Collins if he would be doing better in the presidential campaign. "Jeb Williams, former governor of Florida."

    What do you think?

    Very possible -
    My choice for Jeb - for or against has absolutely NOTHING do to with his last name.

    Looking at Hillary's campaigns, the Kennedy's, and others, America has a pretty weird love/hate relationship with political dynasties.

    If some primaries and had gone differently, we could have seen the White House go from Bush to Clinton to Bush to Clinton with a Bush now running for the next spot. I don't think America wants to work like that.

    He should run as a democrat, no matter what his name is.

    I wouldn't vote for him. I do not support him on several issues.
