When Jeb Bush said, "I'm my own man," during a speech in Chicago yesterday it struck me as a mistake.
Why go on the defensive? Why the hurry to distance himself from both his father and brother? Is Hillary Clinton going to distance herself from Bill?
George W. Bush left office more than six years ago. Jeb should leave the distancing to Hillary who has a lot answer for during her tenure in the Obama Administration.
Then again it's probably better for Republicans to have a candidate who doesn't feel the need to go on the defensive where it concerns his family name be it Jeb Bush or Rand Paul.
Scott Walker doesn't have to distance himself from anyone.
