McCain/Bush 2008 Makes the Rounds Again

The second story from a prominent columnist in the space of a few days touting McCain/Bush as perhaps the Republican's best bet has me feeling that someone is out there floating a trial balloon. This time, it's E. J. Dionne, Jr., of the Washington Post, who at least paints a more plausible scenario than Eleanor Clift's. Dionne sees a Bush endorsement as one way McCain can make an end run around opposition from elements of the right who are inclined to oppose him; he believes Bush would do that, if he thought it was the only way for the Republicans to retain the White House. Just to be sure, Jeb would cinch the deal. Or so goes the scenario...
