Now that Vice-President Dick Cheney is in hospital, it's time to speculate who should be next to be a heartbeat away from the presidency.
Since the American Imperial dynasty needs continuity, the best choice for the job of VP is Brother Jeb. That way it will be easier for him to run in 2008, and get some training done on the job when Brother George is on vacation. A pair of hands inside the whanau is always safer to continue ruling Jesusland.
Empirically speaking, a governor's career is far better suited than a senator seat to have a tilt at the presidency. The Bush family have taken that political life lesson to heart because how many Bush family members have legislative experience? Stay away from legislating, it involves too many compromises, nuances and actual policy wonking (a.k.a. flip-flopping) and Barbara made sure her boys were not going to go down that road.
