American Dynasties

I was thinking the other day, if Hillary Clinton and/or Jeb Bush were to run for President in 2008, and either were to win, we'd have another President from one of two families, effectively keeping the Presidency within 2 families over the course of 4 straight Presidents and at least 6 Presidential terms. 24 years in a row between 2 American families.

Do we really need dynasties in America?

Isn't this a sign that the system ain't workin'?

Can any little kid growing up in the United States really grow up expecting to be President?

Maybe not unless their name is Bush or Clinton.

Apparently, however, this is nothing new, and the Roosevelts have 'em all beat, hands down. So far.
