For John, BLUF: I favor looking amongst the Governors for a candidate. Nothing to see here; just move along.
Ms Amy Davidson,♠ of The New Yorker, serves up some 2016 Presidential Politics with "The G.O.P. Bubble vs. Democratic Stagflation". My late Mother would have been thrilled by the idea that political activity had come to Rancho Mirage. Even if it was Republican activity, sponsored by the Koch Brothers, my Mother being a Democrat.
Besides giving us a look at a couple of Republican cotillions she also talked about the Democrats, but without the same level of detail and breadth of field. On the other hand, I don't believe many Democrats think that the nomination could go to E Warren by the Convention.♥
Yes, I am still interested in Governor Scott Walker, Governor Bobby Jindal and, as my dark horse, Governor Nikki Haley.
I disfavor dynasties. And,the Instapundit thinks that Governor Mitt Romney is thinking of a Senate run, in Utah.
Regards — Cliff

♥ In a different forum I believe I said the Democrat Convention would be before the Republican, but it is a week after, on the 25th of July 2016, venue TBD. The Republican convention, to be held in Cleveland (upper right corner, on Lake Eire, in Cuyahoga County) will be from 18 July through 21 July. The informal rule, "since 1956 the incumbent party has held its convention second." I should have remembered that. Wikipedia did.
