For John, BLUF: Maybe positioning herself for the Veep slot. Nothing to see here; just move along.
First there was Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush throwing his hat into the ring for 2016 and now, per National Journal, we have Ms Carly Fiorina on the verge.
Carly Fiorina is laying the groundwork for what one ally says is an "imminent" presidential campaign—one that could launch as early as next month.Wait. What about South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley? But, I digress.
The former Hewlett-Packard CEO, who raised her political profile with a failed run against Sen. Barbara Boxer of California in 2010, has frequently been mentioned as a long-shot contender to seek the Republican presidential nomination. The speculation is driven by equal parts novelty and activity: Fiorina, who paid several high-profile visits to early-nominating states in 2014, acknowledged that she would likely be the only woman in the GOP field.
My concern with Governor Jeb Bush is that this nation does not need a dynasty in the Presidency. This is not North Korea.♠ As good as Governor Jeb Bush may be, we don't need three Bush Presidencies in short order. If President Washington can step down after two terms, then the Bush family can step back after two Presidencies.
So, if Ms Fiorina announces, she is at the top of my active candidates list, at least for now.
Hat tip to Memeorandum.
