Former President Bush wants brother Jeb to run for White House

WASHINGTON — Former President George W. Bush says he has advice for his brother and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush — “Run.” For president, that is. In an interview aired today with ABC News, the former president says his brother would be, in his words, a “marvelous candidate.” Whether Jeb Bush ultimately does run, his brother added, is a “very personal decision.”
Bush and his wife, Laura, granted ABC the interview ahead of Thursday's opening of the George W. Bush Presidential Center at Southern Methodist University. Of a possible contest between his brother and Hillary Rodham Clinton, both of whom are likely attendees at Thursday's center dedication ceremony, Bush joked that the mere idea would “be a fantastic photo here.” He added: “It would certainly eclipse the museum and the center.”
