Q of the day: Would Jeb Bush have had a shot at the nom if he hopped in the Clown Car?
Apparently Laura And George W. Bush think so.
Former first lady Laura Bush wishes there were one more candidate in the Republican presidential primary: Jeb Bush.
Speaking to a sold-out Sarasota audience on Wednesday, Bush said she had hoped that her brother-in-law and former Florida governor would have jumped into the race this year.
Husband George W. Bush “and I wish he would,” Laura Bush said when asked if Jeb Bush will run for president someday. “We wanted him to this time.”
Note that Jeb said he’s not interested in 2012, but hasn’t ruled anything out in terms of a future run.
