It's hard to conceive of a path for Graham, who is stretching out an announcement until June 1, to win the GOP nomination. It doesn't have anything to do with his qualifications, but with pure, power politics.

George P. Bush is burning with ambition, not ideas but lots of ambition. The latest Bush to sprout on the Texas political landscape is long on pedigree and short on ideology. Of course, that never stops a Bush from running for public office.

For the media, the challenge will be to ensure that the race is close enough to stimulate viewership and high ratings. For the nation, the challenge will be to select the person most qualified to lead the American people.
