If Jeb Bush is indeed running...

...for president in 2016, as a front-page story in the Times suggested, then why did Republican Party elder Bob Dole tell a crowd yesterday that he wants Mitt Romney to run again?

The GOP establishment usually rallies behind only one candidate. As Chris Matthews has often said, "The Democrats fall in love while the Republicans fall in line." So if Jeb is the choice of the establishment, why encourage talk of a Romney candidacy? And where does all this leave that other darling of the establishment, Chris Christie? Hung out to dry?

my 2¢? Mitt has shown over and over that he has no real positions and will literally say *anything* to get elected. So he will do whatever his backers/handlers ask of him. He is a puppet and would be happy to do that. Christie is all about Christie - the backers don't trust him - and probably with good reason.
