Hillary or Jeb?

 http://www.examiner.com/article/jeb-bush-has-decided-to-run-2016?cid=sm-facebook-092414-6.00am-JebBushRunningIn2016

It seems that Jeb Bush has decided to run for president in 2016.  While I think he would be a much better president than any Democrat that is likely to run, I don't think anyone named Bush or Clinton should run. 

It strikes me as too much of an oligarchy to have closely related people run for president after a close family member has already served.  With 300 million people certainly someone other than Jeb Bush or Hillary Clinton can be our next president.

Surveys show that tens of millions of Americans want a third party in the United States because they are unhappy with both the Democrats and the Republicans.  How will running either Hillary Clinton or Jeb Bush appeal to those people?  How will running two people who are close relatives bring in new voters?  I think it will simply drive more people away from the political process; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
