Bush Endorsement of Romney Brings Republican Fight Closer to End
CBS News – It goes without saying, but if Mitt Romney is going to close the door on this contest, he’s going to need help from people like Jeb Bush, Haley Barbour and Mitch Daniels. There aren’t many wise men left in either party, but those three are the closest thing we have to modern day wise men who can weigh in and generate a few news cycles of coverage. (Sarah Palin generates coverage, but of a different sort.)
Bush’s endorsement is not exactly a ringing endorsement of the man Mitt Romney — “it’s time to close ranks” is less powerful than “we love Mitt” — but it comes at just the right time.
