Not just conservatives, but libertarians too.
If you want no choice in the upcoming presidential election – at least between the 2 traditionally most viable parties – then vote for Jeb in the primary. Or Christie for that matter.
That’s what the establishment wants. The people in DC (on both sides of the aisle), the political consultants (not your editor however), the bankers, they all want a Bush/Clinton race. It’s a win/win for them.
That’s the goal. Sew up the presidency with a good corporatist early.

Mitt Romney’s surprise decision to bail out of the 2016 presidential race immediately vaults former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush to the front, especially among establishment Republicans who are expected to flood his campaign with donations, according to analysts.
“This really helps Bush,” said GOP consultant Ron Bonjean. “He is right now the top establishment candidate.” But, he added, in becoming the establishment frontrunner, Bush also becomes the top target of conservatives.
