Confederate flag debate heats up in Republican presidential race

Republican presidential candidates continued to struggle Sunday over how to respond to last week's mass shooting of nine black parishioners at a historic Charleston, S.C., church, particularly over the issue of whether the state should remove the Confederate battle flag from its Capitol.

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee told NBC's “Meet the Press" that his fellow GOP presidential candidates were being “baited” with a question that a future commander-in-chief should not have to address.

“People want their president to be focused on the economy, keeping America safe, some really big issues for the nation,” he said. “I don't think they want us to weigh in on every little issue in all 50 states that might be an important issue to the people of that state but not on the desk of the president. ... I don't personally display it anywhere. So it's not an issue for me.”

Hillary Rodham Clinton is the front-runner in the Democratic presidential primary, and Jeb Bush is a front-runner in the Republican one. And although there is a lifetime of politics between now and the next election, there's a good chance that, on Nov. 8, 2016, Americans will choose between a Bush and a Clinton for the second time in 25 years. We could have our third Bush presidency or another turn for the Clintons.

To many Americans, this is troubling. Last year, former First Lady Barbara Bush said that "there are more than two or three families that should run for high office in America." Sixty-nine percent of Americans agree with that statement, according to a 2014 poll from NBC News and the Wall Street Journal.
