Cafferty: Should Republicans listen to Jeb Bush now?

[cnn-photo-caption image= caption=" Join the conversation on Jack's blog."]
Jeb Bush says it's time for Republicans to leave the Reagan era behind them and look forward. The former Florida Governor insists the party's ideas need to be "forward-looking and relevant" instead of dwelling on the nostalgia of the good old days. He's also acknowledging how well President Obama's message of hope and change resonated with the voters during the election.

Jeb Bush - who's part of the Republicans' new effort to reconnect with voters - is right about all this stuff, but here's the problem: He's the brother of the man who could very well be more responsible than anyone else for the downfall of the Republican Party.

Jeb Bush's name has been mentioned as a potential presidential candidate in 2012; but it seems hard to imagine that the American people would go for that… again.
