Mel Martinez Out, Jeb Bush In?

More excitement in the U.S. Senate as Jeb Bush is seriously considering a run for the Senate in Florida now that Mel Martinez is going to step down. I think it's a good idea no matter what you hear about the Bush "brand" being poison right now. He's hugely popular in Florida and by 2010 it'll be a whole different ballgame.

Meanwhile, I suspect Martinez is really leaving the Senate because he has accomplished what he set out to do:



Mission accomplished.
