Boehner's doom is Jeb Bush's? No.

CNN is reporting that Boehner's resignation spells trouble for Jeb Bush.
House Speaker John Boehner's abrupt resignation Friday -- after an insurrection by grassroots activists infuriated at the failure of Washington Republicans to thwart President Barack Obama -- was another bad omen for a campaign wilting amid anti-establishment fury.

In the 2016 presidential race, outsiders are in, insiders are out and the messy power struggle that is splintering the GOP is going to make winning the nomination -- and then capturing the White House -- very tough for a party standard bearer like Bush.
As much as I'm not cheering for Bush to be the nominee, I think it's a bit of a stretch to suggest this is a problem for him. Bush has a lot of money. Bush has time before the Iowa caucuses and the New Hampshire primary. And more importantly while this might be a sign that there's dissension amongst the ranks, it doesn't mean what happened to Boehner will translate into the same sort of trouble for Jeb Bush.
