Jon Stewart is amused by the media's speculation over what could happen in the 2016 presidential election (and beyond!), which could pit Hillary Clinton against Jeb Bush. “Thank God we fought a bloody war against England so that political power would no longer be consolidated but in one family," Stewart joked. "Because in my mind, two just makes sense.” (Three would be way too much, he added, obviously leading to a "Game of Thrones" type situation).

But the media has identified other potential candidates, including Texas Gov. Rick Perry. Because "why speculate about the near future when you can speculate about the far future?"
