From the Washington Post:

Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft former Florida governor Jeb Bush into the 2016 presidential race, courting him and his intimates and starting talks on fundraising strategy.

Concerned that the George Washington Bridge traffic scandal has damaged New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s political standing and alarmed by the steady rise of Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), prominent donors, conservative leaders and longtime operatives say they consider Bush the GOP’s brightest hope to win back the White House.

Please Ghod, no more Bushes in the White House. If Jeb Bush is the Republican nominee, he’ll lose. For better or worse, the public is sick of the Bushes. Clintons, too.

Christie? No way, thank Ghod. While I’m at it, no Santorum, either.

It’s way too early for me to endorse anybody. I will say that Rand Paul is intriguing, but I commit to no one right now.
