    Jeb Bush: Wife and Mother More Supportive of Potential Run

    The matriarch of the Bush family may be coming around to the idea of extending their political dynasty.

    According to her son Jeb Bush, at least.

    The former Florida governor told the Associated Press that his mother, former first lady Barbara Bush is now neutral to the idea of him running for president in 2016. It is a notable reversal from her comments last year on NBC"s "Today" when she said the country has had enough Bushes in the White House.

    The only way that Jeb Bush will ever see the inside of the White House is as a guest.I don't believe that America will put another Bush in the White House.

    Yep....GWB destroyed whatever chance Jeb had of ever becoming President (Bobby Jindal has more of a chance). There won't be another Bush in the whitehouse for at least another generation.

    actually, in an election against hillary, i believe he would prevail
    he has some of the charisma bill possesses but that hillary is without
    that would be the difference which would put him over the top in a head-to-head competition
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    while that name will handicap him initially, as the public grows to know him separate and apart from dubya, his surname will have little impact on the voting public
    in contrast, as the public sees hillary has little of what bill has, in terms of political acumen and charisma, her prospects will fade

    Jeb Bush will not be president of the USA, mainly because his last name is Bush.

    Don't take my word for this, just wait and see.

    If jeb runs, he may win. No one really knows, despite what others on this thread say. Jeb is not gwb as much as the low info libs want it to be true

    jeb is the smart one
    the one the family assumed would be president one day
    dubya was the black sheep

    i would vote for jeb before hillary ... and i recognize dubya was an incompetent, who allowed himself to be lead around by cheney
    if hillary is the opposition, the choice becomes another clinton versus another bush. and of the two, jeb is a much better prospect as a national leader. let me ask: what does hillary stand for?
    yep, after all these years, i don't know either

    Currently Romney ahead of Obama if the elections were held today. I wouldn't write off Jeb.

    As a Floridian that lived under Jeb's term as Governor. I can verify that he is NOT the smart one. He (and the FL legislature) behaved like an imbecile in the Terry Schaivo case. I you like shameless pandering you'll love Jeb.

    On October 21, 2003, at the encouragement if Governor Jeb Bush, the Florida legislature passed "Terri's Law," a measure specifically giving Bush the unilateral power to replace Terri Schiavo's feeding tube, which had been removed, for the second time during the endless litigation, six days earlier The law was nakedly, almost hilariously, unconstitutional, in part because it directly contradicted a law the legislature had passed during a less frenzied time several years earlier
