Today, I think people inside and outside public policy circles would hold to that opinion. I think Jeb Bush is an extraordinary politician in that he's very smart. I think he's truly interested in ideas. He's done very innovative things, not just in Medicaid, which I talk about in the book, but also in education. Jeb is a great individual. Who knows? Maybe one day he'll be a great president.
