Bush Says Brother Jeb Won't Run for President

Former President George W. Bush said don’t hold your breath if you’re expecting his younger brother Jeb Bush, the former governor of Florida, to run for president in 2012. "I wish he would," the elder Bush told Fox News, according to CNN. “He has to run first. And he jeb,bush,president,2012has made it clear he is not running in 2012. And when the man says, 'I'm not running,' he means it. I wish he would run."

GOP officials, as well as a growing number of political analysts, are saying Jeb Bush may be best suited in 2012 to bridge the differences within the Republican Party and unseat President Barack Obama, the man who succeeded his brother in the White House. Bush, however, has fervently denied any rumors surfacing that he’s even considering a run for president, at least not in 2012. But the future beyond that has never been ruled out, and Bush would only be 63 in 2016.

Bush told CNN last month Sarah Palin will get his vote for president in 2012 if she's the Republican nominee. Other current prospects for the GOP nomination include Mitt Romney, Mike Huckabee, Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul, Haley Barbour, Tim Pawlenty, Mike Pence, and Rick Santorum.
