The Jeb Bush for the 2016 Republican nominee for President campaign is over : a spectacular failure of the very high expectations of all his donors that had amassed a $103 million campaign war chest just a year ago.

Hey, I don’t agree with the man’s politics and policies, but now we are left with candidates such as Donald Trump and Ted Cruz. As political observer Ezra Klein says here, we need to stop laughing at Trump (and take him seriously); he’s downright dangerous. Or : never mind Trump. Watch out for Ted Cruz, and do not vote for him. See what Robert Reich, Professor of Public Policy at the University of California at Berkeley, says about him, here.
