Bush speaks fluent Spanish, has Hispanic sons, and despite being a wealthy kid from a prestigious family, married a Mexican girl well before anyone could accuse him of doing it for politics. He was a popular governor of the most relevant swing state.
Rubio is an idiot who is literally riding on his race and age. No issue with that per se, Obama did it. But Obama had some substance behind it. I seriously think Rubio is just dumb. Not Sarah plain dumb, but probably not any brighter than your average umiami political science grad. Most importantly, Rubio has shown he will bitch out on immigration to get elected. Heb won't do that.
You make some good points, but it feels like Bush is doing really poorly at campaigning right now. For example, the whole "knowing what we know now" Iraq thing is something that should easily have been predicted and met with some sort of focus tested answer rather than the mess that it ended up being. Assuming Trump flames out, he's probably also going to face backlash from the tea party types.
