Sam Stein Discusses "The Bush Revival" On MSNBC (VIDEO)

Huffington Post reporter Sam Stein went on MSNBC this morning to discuss his recent article, The Bush Revival: How Jeb, Rove, Gillespie Are Leading The GOP Again.

Much of the speculation about the 2012 presidential election has been focused on former Florida Governor, and brother of the last president, Jeb Bush. But Stein points out that "the Bush revival" is bigger than just Jeb. Figures like Liz Cheney, Karl Rove, and former RNC Chair Ed Gillespie are "becoming more assertive in the current landscape," according to Stein.

"They're crafting strategy for retaking the House and the Senate in 2010, and they have the type of credentials that a lot of Republican candidates are leaning on," Stein said. "The toxicity that used to be accompanied by associating with Bush is really very much gone in some respects."
