Chris Cillizza: Jeb Bush Presents 'Post-Obama Presidency Foreign Policy' (RealClearPolitics)

CHRIS CILLIZZA, WASHINGTON POST: Well, I think he's going for a post-Obama presidency foreign policy. I think the excerpts we've seen are against the way in which Obama has positioned us in the world, he made promises and hasn't kept them. That said, look an advisory committee is just that. These are not promises these people will serve in the administration if Jeb Bush gets elected but Paul Wolfowitz, John Negroponte, many high profile people, his fathers and more importantly his brother's administration, many of which are quite controversial, I wrote a piece saying Jeb Bush can't have his cake and eat it, too. You can't benefit from the last name being Bush, fund-raising, placed in the race, part of Republican royalty but also not have the issues he'll have when you name an advisory group like this that includes many people from your father and your brother's administrations that a lot of the country may not agree with their vision for the country's future.
