The Case for Jeb

Rich Lowry argues former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) should run for president in 2012 instead of possibly waiting until the next cycle.

"By 2016, a bumper crop of Republican talent will be poised to storm the national stage. Marco Rubio not only will be the hot new thing out of Florida, he'll be seasoned. Chris Christie will be ready. A host of senators and governors -- freshly minted in the 2010 elections, so it's too soon for them to run now -- will be ready to go. Jeb will not be such a predominant figure in such a robust field. The crop of prospective GOP candidates this time reflects the downdraft in Republican fortunes in 2006 and 2008. Jeb would loom all the larger for it."
