Jeb Bush on the candidates
- Rudy Giuliani: "Direct, sees the world the way it is, and he's direct and he communicates well and he has high energy and tremendous personality."
- Fred Thompson: "Committed conservative." He added that Thompson is "new at the game."
- John McCain: "His courage. I was in my bed watching this with my wife and I got out of bed and started cheering," when McCain mentioned the woodstock line during the last debates.
- Mitt Romney: "Intellectual curiosity. . .He's incredibly smart and asks the questions necessary to find that common ground for the next challenges we face, which politics is not very good at right now."
- Mike Huckabee: "I like him. He's a great speaker and clear-minded about the importance of moral principles."
Comment: Good summary. If Jeb's last name were not "Bush", he could be running himself!
