Jeb's Late Endorsement of Romney

Rick Klein of ABC News added a siren to his tweet. This is the most unsurprising endorsement ever.

SIREN. Jeb Bush statement: "I am endorsing Mitt Romney for our Party’s nomination."

Bush is at his core an establishment Republican. Bush views Romney as the most responsible adult in the field. Ron Paul is not a consideration for Bush. Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum are not Bush's kind of Republican, in the way Katherine Harris did not meet the Bush standard.

Mitt Romney has the most delegates and will become the nominee. Did Klein think Bush was going to endorse Herman Cain? This endorsement isn't a major news story. The fact that Jeb waited so long to endorse Romney shows a lack of faith in Romney's ability to secure the nomination. The Bush endorsement would have been huge news before New Hampshire. The timing of the endorsement now will last one day in the news cycle.
