In light of Chris Christie’s uncertain political future, some influential Republican figures have shifted their gaze toward Jeb Bush, pegging him as the GOP prospect they believe is best equipped to win the presidency in 2016.

Sure. Because the only things many socons are actually conservative about are sex, drugs, rock-n-roll, and abortion. As long as you twang their twangers on these issues, the rest of your platform and history can be right out of Das Kapital, and they’re fine with it. They like Jeberiah because he’s Mike Huckabee in a better suit and pedigree.
