The Shoe Warning Worked!
Jeb Bush will not be running for US Senate in 2010 to replace one-term Senator Mel Martinez. I guess that means we can all collect our shoes from the Palmetto Expressway. But remember, we can reassemble the shoes in a matter of minutes. Oh yes, we can.
More seriously, Jeb is collateral damage to the worst President in American history. You will not be able to be elected dog catcher with the last name "Bush" for a generation or two. I don't think Reggie Bush could get elected to be a provost at USC in this environment.
As for the Florida Senate seat, it'll be a top target for Democrats in 2010.
