The stars are aligning for another Clinton – Bush presidential election campaign. I’m not referring to Hillary vs. Jeb (or “Heb” as some are now calling him, since it was revealed he identified himself as Hispanic when registering to vote in 2009). No, I’m thinking ahead to the 2028 campaign, when Chelsea Clinton will be primed to battle George Prescott Bush, Texas Land Commissioner, for the privilege of exercising their family’s timeshare rights to the White House. Chelsea is the inheritor of the Bill & Hillary political franchise, and George P. Bush, the son of Jeb Bush, nephew of George Walker Bush, grandson of George Herbert Walker Bush, and great-grandson of Senator and Hitler enabler (it’s a long story) Prescott Bush, is the most prominent of the possible Bush dynasty President-electables. Chelsea vs. George P. – I can feel the non-excitement building already!
The grooming process for the 2028 race for the White House is already underway. Chelsea is playing an integral role in her mother’s campaign for president, formally announced this week. Chelsea is now described by insiders (always nameless people when it comes to the Clintons) as a full and equal member in the family business, which has the public philanthropy part through the Clinton Foundation, and the not-so-public part involved in maintaining ties to the high and mighty who have access to a lot of money necessary to run a modern political campaign. It’s this second part that is really important. In 1996, when Bill Clinton was running for reelection, his campaign costs were $196 million. Hillary’s campaign, according to unnamed sources, is expected to raise $2.5 billion in order to reclaim the White House.
