    Well, Lord Obama set the bar....Too late to turn back now....Maybe we can find a Bush in High School class President to run.....heh, heh....

    Or wait are you talking Jeb Bush? Now that we're talking about 3 Bushes we need to clarify!
    Yeah, for the 2016, I was talking Jeb...Should have made that clear.

    I thought that too. I suppose they're different, though. The media crowned them "America's royalty" and a "dynasty" decades ago.

    Some people still want a royal family. I never liked the idea.

    you're thinking too recent...

    How about the Adams? Sam Adams, revolutionary figure and governor. John Adams, President. John Quincy Adams, president. Charles Adams Sr., congressman and UK ambassador. Charles Adams jr., brigadier general and president of the union pacific railroads. Charles Adams III, secretary of the navy

    the Harrison family had two president and multiple Virginia governors come from it

    Then Roosevelt's had their fair share of political members as well

    the country had a long history of political famlies

    The Constitution prohibits the President and Vice-President from coming from the same state. I am sure that could be remedied with a move by one or the other though.

    Bush the Younger unquestionably tainted the Bush name in national politics. It should have happened sooner given the family's sorted past. Nonetheless, Bush the Younger screwed the pooch. There will never be another Bush in the White House in our lifetimes. Having said that, I have no doubt that many desperate Republicans will jump on the idea of another Bush in Washington. If the GOP is serious about leading the nation forward one of the things they need to do is to find new leadership, real leadership that will unite the nation. "Bush" is a now a divisive political brand.

    Depends on how bad Obama screws up the Middle East. People have a tendency to idealize the past. Just look at all that Kennedy Camelot stuff that still sells an ungodly amount of books.

    Technically those would be Bush's 2 and 3.
