This morning on Fox News Sunday, host Chris Wallace asked former President George H.W. Bush about the possibility of his son, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, running for Senate. The former president expressed his hope that Jeb would run and then told Wallace that he’d ultimately like to see Jeb elected President:
WALLACE: In terms of public service and ability to help the country, you’d like to see [Jeb] run [for Senate]?
H. W. BUSH: I’d like to see him run, I’d like to see him be President someday, or maybe senator, whatever.
In an apparent reference to the current President Bush’s unpopularity, H. W. Bush then joked, “I mean, right now is probably a bad time. We’ve had enough Bushs in there.” Watch it:
