Roundtable: Hillary, Jeb, and a nasty GOP primary

(CNN) – Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is enjoying what many consider a sort of inevitability, but it's not the first time Clinton has looked like a shoe-in for the Democratic presidential nomination.

And the groundswell of Democratic excitement isn't without its detractors. Some are concerned that all the focus is on Clinton, and not on the midterms, which will hurt Democrats in 2014.

Meanwhile, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, speaking to a business organization Monday, told a story about why a voter told him he was voting for Obama back in 2007.

"He looked at me and he goes 'we had a Bush, then we had a Clinton, then we had a Bush, then we're going to have a Clinton?' And then he turned to me and he goes, 'And then we're going to have a Bush?'" he said. "So, I get the point, I get the point and it's something if I happen to run I have to overcome that. And so will Hillary by the way."

The Washington Post's Matea Gold, Yahoo! News' Olivier Knox, and CNN political reporter Peter Hamby join CNN's "The Lead with Jake Tapper" to discuss.
