It's January 1, 2015 -- which means it's the perfect time to ramp up speculation about the presidential race that's now only 677 days away!
In Florida, of course, that means we're talking primarily about two Republican heavyweights, the former governor and conservative family dynasty torchbearer Jeb Bush and his perennially-considered golden boy successor (like, in kind of a creepy way -- remember that sword passing thing?) Marco Rubio. After months of questions over which pol, if either, would jump into the 2016 scramble, Bush, of course, made the big quasi-announcement a couple weeks back that he had decided to "actively explore the possibility of running for President of the United States."
