then we heard he was meeting with donors and his family. Some could say it's a little early for the pre-post mortems, but, as I've been saying, even if he had the money to hang in there, he's kind of an awful candidate and it might be a good idea of he just didn't hang in there. The US News pre-post mortem I linked to has a beautiful line in it--"he can't ad-lib a fart". Of the cuff, Jeb! is kind of a clod. The sad thing is, with preparation, he's just not much better.
When the family gathers round him to square with the facts, I have the feeling his mom and dad might just tell him that his campaign is going off to live on a farm in the country, where it will have plenty of room to run around, and Jeb won't see it anymore--but won't the campaign be so much happier? And maybe Jeb! will understand.
