Supporters of a potential Jeb Bush run for the presidency don’t think the lack of popularity for his brother George at the end of his presidency will hurt the former Florida governor. Jeb Bush said in July that he’s not running in 2012, but his supporters already are looking at 2016, The Hill reports.

By that time the Bush name might carry a much more positive connotation, especially compared to President Obama, Bush supporters say.

“I do think the term 'Bush fatigue' probably summarizes the challenge Jeb would have had running, even here in Florida,” says former Rep. Tom Feeney, R-Fla., who served as speaker of the Florida House of Representatives under Bush and considers him a friend and mentor.

But views will turn favorable toward the George W. Bush administration, he says. One of the biggest current successes, growing stability in Iraq, comes from Bush’s presidency, Feeney notes.
