2020 VISION:

Republicans launch yet another George Bush (Daily Telegraph, July 26, 2010)

Now George P., the son of the former Florida governor Jeb and his Mexican wife, Columba, has co-founded a new organisation, Hispanic Republicans of Texas, to support Latino candidates for office in the Lone Star state.

Slick, bilingual television commercials marking its launch showed how the clean-cut Mr Bush was a natural before the cameras - confirming the belief of many that, in time, he may become a candidate to take the Republican banner national.

But the 34-year-old Texas lawyer and property developer, a college football star, was not present for the group's formal launch in the Texan state capital, Austin.

For he was recently sent to Iraq as an intelligence officer in the Navy reserves - a deployment that further burnishes his political credentials.
