Importance of cousins in presidential politics

The flash mob grows.  Sen. Lindsey Graham just made his candidacy official.  Jeb Bush, on the other hand, is still unannounced but hopes he will run. What a strange way to address the biggest decision he would ever make.  Is he hoping that he will tell himself to run?

Our Gov. John Kasich is ready to bivouac in Iowa, continuing to amuse himself with curious passerbys in the media. His absence from Ohio could  make it all the harder for the University of Akron's $10,000 a month lobbyist and Kasich specialist, Summit County Republican chairman Alex Arshinkoff, to reach him should the school decide to add seats  to its football stadium. Or something.

If you want to pick a survivor  from this GOP crowd, I would give the edge to  the candidate with the  most relatives still on speaking terms.   Go figure.
