Jeb Bush - President 2016

So a nation has spoken and President Obama will serve a second term in office.

Possibly he will be able to push through some meaningful policies, but with only the congress as Democrat controlled, and the Senate in the hands of the Republican, its more likely that the US voters have simply just opted to 'kick the can of worms, further down the street'.

Thankfully, the result of the popular vote (50.4% to 48% with Florida shamefully still to declare) was also reflected the electoral college in outcome - although not is spirit, where the college has given Obama a lead of about 100 votes, which shows how disproportional it can be.

As usual there are some interesting snippets thrown up, perhaps the oddest of which is the fact that:
Republicans Need A Bush Or Nixon On  The Presidential Ticket

The Republican ticket of 1928, is the last one to capture the White House without a Bush or a Nixon on it - that's both weird and worrying in equal measure ....

Herbert Hoover 1928 Presidential Ticket
Nixon Eisenhower - Inauguration of an era

........... So Jeb Bush for President 2016 anyone?.
