No Hillary, No Bush, No Problem


Michael Barone applies his vast historical and political knowledge to an interesting subject: political dynasties. Specifically, how many people would vote for Hillary Clinton (or John Ellis Bush) because they liked her husband (brother)? How many would vote against her (him)? And would anyone give half a damn about either of them if they were Hillary Smith or John E. Johnson?

(The "Jeb for president" idea has never made any sense to me. In trial heats, Jeb dramatically underperforms other Republicans with his same level of name recognition, like McCain and Giuliani. He reguarly underpolls Hillary by 10 points or so.)
