Bush v. Clinton round 2

Nothing tantalizes the media more than the prospect of another Bush v. Clinton presidential campaign.

Now that the 2012 election is over, speculation has turned to Jeb Bush and Hillary Rodham Clinton running against one another four years from now.

Neither has declared intentions to run, but both currently overshadow all other possible bidders.

As Politico noted Thursday, “Any other would-be presidential candidate will first take a long look toward Chappaqua and Miami before moving forward.”

This year marked the first time since 1976 that a Bush or a Clinton did not seek the presidency or vice presidency. Clinton will be 69 in 2016, so it likely would be the last time she would run. Bush will be 63.

Then there’s the next generation. Chelsea Clinton grew up in the White House and has been groomed for public life. She sits on the board of her father’s foundation as well as the Clinton Global Initiative.

George P. Bush, son of Jeb, made a campaign filing in Texas Wednesday that would enable him to run for state office. The office wasn’t specified.

In a year where the Latino vote went heavily Democratic, his background would be embraced by the GOP. His father was governor of Florida; his uncle and grandfather served as president; and his mother is originally from Mexico.
