Lehman's PEU Gets Makeover, Bush Boys Have Many Potential Dates

Bidders for bankrupt Lehman Brother's Private Equity division and other investment assets could be growing. Bloomberg reported on potential buyers for the firm employing Jeb Bush and cousin George Herbert Walker. They include:

Bain Capital
Hellman & Friedman
The Carlyle Group
Goldman Sachs
Collier Capital
Lexington Partners

Where will the Bush Boys end up after they net that $250,000 Lehman bonus for "work well done"? Which private equity underwriter (PEU) will land their talents?
