Not Clinton-Bush Part II

Please not again! Today's morning political chatter is buzzing about a Jeb Bush vs. Hilary Clinton run in the 2016 Presidential elections. For starters it is way too early to even speculate. But what else do these political speculators have to do with their time other than (you guessed it) speculate.

Haven't the American voters had enough of Bushes and a Clinton in the White House? I don't quite understand the appeal of a repeat. American voters do have a future to look ahead to, so why must we constantly revisit the past with Clinton and Bush. Neither candidate gives me the warm fuzzies or makes me feel secure.

Both parties, especially the Republicans, must put up a fresh candidate who actually has some quality and substantial ideas that will lead America out of the dark hole we seem to have entered. Looking backward to Hilary and Jeb will not lead us forward. Stop the inner party bickering and the cross-party bomb throwing. Time to stop leading from behind and looking to our past for Presidential candidates. Give the American voters an actual strong leader for a change. Someone who actually stands firm and has a vision.

And no, I honestly have no idea who that candidate might be on either side of the aisle. I'm just hoping we don't have another Bush-Clinton duel.
