Terrific column by Doug Wead thursday [“6 reasons Jeb is running – including the real one”]. I was wondering why Jeb Bush was running when I know that he knows that the odds are stacked so strongly against him given the early primary states and the fact that Christie will beat him badly in New York, which was moved up to accommodate Christie. Wead must be right. The opportunity to position and indirectly publicize his son for the Texas governor’s race and an eventual presidential run is too good to pass up. A great insight on Wead’s part.
