To add insult to injury, a rumor is circulating that Giuliani is thinking of choosing Jeb Bush as his running mate. After two failed Bush presidencies, a lot of people thought it would be impossible to have a third Bush president, but this seems to be the way it could happen. It would certainly give Giuliani a boost in fund raising to be allied with the mighty Bush clan and all their cronies.
The latest sad and undemocratic trend in the US is dynasties that are caused by the ability to raise funds. Whether you're a son or a brother or a wife, being a member of a political dynasty is a big leg up, and it's a given that we'll see more and more of this.
