Quote of the day: Jeb Bush on Donald Trump

"Look, this guy's the front-runner. He should be treated like a front-runner, not like some kind of alternative universe to the political system." JEB BUSH, on Donald J. Trump, at a town-hall-style meeting in Norfolk, Va. From the NY Times report.

The scary thing about this is that "front-runner" implies representative leadership. If Trump is leading the Republican party, think about what that says about Republicans. And for Bush, supposedly a traditional, establishment candidate, to grant that role to Trump admits what scares establishment Republicans about what their party has become.
