On the front page of the New York Times (in the national edition), we 
learn of the rise of Jeb Bush's fortune among conservatives, which 
may eventually help continue the Bush dynasty in the White House:

In a Polarizing Case, Jeb Bush Cements His Political Stature

WASHINGTON, March 24 - Gov. Jeb Bush's last-minute intervention in 
the case of Terri Schiavo, even after the president had ended his own 
effort to keep her alive, may have so far failed in a legal sense, 
but it has cemented the religious and social conservative credentials 
of a man whose political pedigree is huge and whose political future 
remains a subject of intense speculation.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

He has assumed a very high profile in this polarizing case just as 
Republicans are contemplating the void that will be left when 
President Bush begins his walk off the stage in two years or so. At a 
time when many of the most frequently mentioned possibilities to lead 
the party are moderates like John McCain and Rudolph W. Giuliani, the 
governor now certainly has a place, if he wants it, as a prime 
contender in what is shaping up as a fight to represent a 
conservative wing that has proved increasingly dominant.

"He has strongly identified himself with the Christian conservative 
movement," said Matthew Corrigan, a political science professor at 
the University of North Florida. "If the Republican Party is looking 
for someone with good ties with the Christian conservative movement, 
he is the one who is going to have them."</blockquote>
