But the thought of another Bush in the White House is at least at this point for most Americans stomach turning. But Former President George H.W Bush this weekend spoke of his desire to see his younger son former Florida Governor Jeb Bush (R-Florida) make a run for the White House. Jeb Bush is already reportedly mulling a run for the Senate seat in 2010, which current Senator Mel Martinez (R-Florida) has stated he will not run to be re-elected to.
But the former President went even further, saying he has even higher aspirations for his younger son.
Former President George H.W. Bush said he wants more than a Senate seat for his son Jeb. He wants him in the White House.
Bush, appearing on Fox News Sunday, made the statement in response to questions about his son’s political future.
“I’d like to see him run [for Senate],” the elder Bush said. “I’d like to see him be president some day.”
Advisers to Jeb Bush (R), the former governor of Florida, have said he’s considering a bid for the seat of Sen. Mel Martinez (R-Fla.), who will not seek reelection in 2010.
George H.W. Bush acknowledged that asking the country to elect a third “President Bush” might be asking for too much.
In addition he stated the criticism of the current President has been hard for he and his family to take. ( as opposed to the Presidency of his son which has been even harder for the rest of America to take).
