According to AP, House Speaker John Boehner has "nudged" Jeb Bush to run for the presidency. Bush should nudge Boehner to pass immigration reform, without which, any GOP candidate is doomed to get the same share of the Latino vote as Mitt Romney and, just so, lose the White House. Indeed, there is only one way for the Republicans to lose control of the House before re-districting in 2020, and that is if sane centrists like Bush decline to run because they think the GOP brand is still too toxic to win. That would leave the nomination to the likes of Rand Paul or Ted Cruz, resulting in the kind of 50-state sweep that would give Democrats a House majority.
