Oh, Hail, No!

Little bruddah Bush ran as a moderate too. Until he got appointed by big bruddah and teh supremes. How'd that work out for ya? Via McClatchy, "Jeb Bush is back, and some think he's looking presidential."
"I think that leaders on both sides of the aisle need to figure out where there is common ground and at least focus on that,'' he said. "It's one thing to give a good speech. The other thing is to invite people that don't agree exactly with your point of view to build consensus.''

This from the governor who presided over some of Florida's most hyper-partisan battles of the last decade? Who helped declare his brother the winner of the 2000 presidential recount, threw out affirmative action with the "One Florida'' program, made the FCAT the end-all be-all of the public schools and insisted on getting in between brain-damaged Terri Schiavo and her husband?
Bad idea, folks, baaaaad idea.
