In all probability, 2024 will see George Prescott Bush as the GOP nominee. Not something I'm eager to see happen, but pretty much a done deal at this
And how the hell is the candidate for an election 7 YEARS from now "pretty much a done deal at this point"?
History. Obama delivered the 2004 DNC keynote speech as a state Senator in Illinois. Few had heard of him prior to that speech, but following it, he
was immediately thrown about as a potential future POTUS candidate for the Democrats. This begat a successful run for US Senate, then less than a
year into that term, he formed his 2008 presidential candidacy team. Over the past 2 years, the media buzz around GP Bush has been similar.
I also expect the GOP will begin to more
actively court the Latino vote nationally, and presently GPB is the natural choice to lean towards in doing that. He's got the Bush name and legacy
behind him, making him a very safe candidate among non-Latino voters, but he's always celebrated his hispanic heritage openly, making him likely
popular in the Latino voter pool.
Nikki Haley is also a possible pick, gathering both the female vote and a minority vote as an Indian woman.
