George Bush Mentions The Idea Of President Jeb Bush

Already boiling the blood of certain political factions is a report from CNN's Political Ticker that mentions that President George Bush floated the idea of Jeb Bush possibly running for president in the future.
When a SkyNews correspondent asked President George Bush if whether the end of his term as president would mark the end of a Bush presidential dynasty which started with his father George H.W. Bush, 20 years ago, Bush replied "Well, we've got another one out there who did a fabulous job as governor of Florida, and that's Jeb."

He then said that any other questions about that would have to be referred to Jeb Bush.

Laura Bush followed up by adding that both brothers entered the political arena to serve the country was because of the example shown to them by their father when she was asked whether her husband would be "the last Bush", she concluded with, "Well, who knows. We'll see."

Jeb Bush was formerly the 43rd Governor of Florida when he defeated the Democratic opponent Lt. Governor Buddy MacKay by over 418,000 votes, in 1998.

The Florida Governor's race attracted national attention when Jeb Bush was re-elected in November 2002, becoming the first Republican in the state's history to be re-elected as Governor.

Bush defeated Democratic challenger Bill McBride with 56 percent to 43 percent, a greater margin of victory than in Bush's 1998 campaign for the Governor's office. He also increased the number of counties in his victory column, winning several Florida counties for the very first time.

More on Jeb Bush at Wikipedia, for reference.

Immediately after the Political Ticker report was published, reactions came out of the Shakesville blog who declared, "I'd literally vote for a bag of vomit before I'd vote for Jeb Bush."

Can you hear the heads of the far left liberal side of the blogosphere, exploding right now?
