A new poll shows the former governor of Florida — brother of President Bush 43 and son of President Bush 41 — leading the field of potential 2016 Republican presidential candidates. The poll comes just as Pope Francis is moving assertively, and some might say clumsily, on the public policy front, inspiring the deal between Havana and Washington to renew full diplomatic relations and preparing a papal encyclical on climate change.
Story is about the Pope’s taking positions right and left (or just left, suit yourself) and putting it to Catholic candidates, such as Jeb Bush.
And “clumsily” as to the Pope’s jumping into things seems about right. He’s the quickest draw in the west, this Francis, going too often where angels fear to tread.
