Election 2016

Barbara Bush: Son Jeb Most Qualified Person to Run for President, Bushes, Clintons, Kennedys Should Step Aside For Others

Doesn't want him running for president


If former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush decides to run for the White House in 2016, he will have to first win over his mother.

In an interview with C-SPAN, former First Lady Barbara Bush expanded on her observation last year that "we've had enough Bushes," saying she hopes Jeb doesn't run, even though she thinks he is the most qualified. "If we can't find more than two or three families to run for high office, that's silly," she said in an interview for the network's First Ladies series.
