Here Comes Another Bush: Jeb in 2012?

President Bush floated the possibility of his brother, Jeb, running for President. The former Governor of Florida has not said he's interested in the job, but according to CNN, the current President Bush thinks he'd make a great Commander in Chief.

For only the second time in nearly three decades, there won’t be a Bush on the presidential ballot this November. But that absence may not be a permanent one, the current White House occupants hinted Sunday.

President Bush was asked by a SkyNews correspondent whether the end of his term marked the end of the Bush presidential dynasty that began with his father’s Oval Office tenure 20 years ago.

In response, Bush singled out his brother, who has often been mentioned as a possible Republican presidential contender. "Well, we've got another one out there who did a fabulous job as governor of Florida, and that's Jeb,” he said. “But you know, you better ask him whether or not he's thinking of running. But he'd be a great president."

I don't know if Jeb will run or not, but the Bush that has the best chance of someday winning the White House again is this guy, Jeb's son, George Prescott Bush. He's 32 and his mother was born in Mexico. Plus, he looks like Pete Sampras or JFK, Jr. (not bad for a Bushie). Maybe he and Chelsea can square off in 2016.
