W JR?:

Jeb Bush is out. But Marco Rubio is the real Bush in the 2016 race. (James Poulos, February 21, 2016, The Week)

It is Rubio who has embraced Dubya and his frightfully damaged legacy as if it were the greatest inheritance of all, and Rubio who channels Bush's cocky and Christian compassion more than anyone else in the field. Rubio, more than anyone, would set out to follow in Bush's foreign policy footsteps. Rubio, one feels, has already memorized his rousing address unveiling his signature guest worker program.

Now that he doesn't have to differentiate himself from the other moderates anymore he can run full on compassionate conservatism and differentiate himself from the candidates of hate.
