Into the Sunset...

The eminent political oracle of MSNBC, Chuck Todd, reported a curious factoid today that might not be of interest to anyone but me. In his words:

"An unfamiliar sight will greet Texas voters this year. There’s no Bush on the ballot. The last time there wasn't a Bush on the Texas ballot -- or in Texas office -- was 1976. And if you exclude ’71 to ’77, there has been a Bush on the Texas ballot or in office since ’64."

When you think about the stranglehold the Bush family has had at various levels of state and national politics for the last 40-plus years, it is astounding (and frankly a welcome sundown if you ask me). But, this tale might not be over; watch out for Jeb.
