In an interview Thursday afternoon at his Crawford, Texas, ranch with CNN’s Jake Tapper, former President George W. Bush said he hopes his younger brother, Jeb, to run for President. He noted that Jeb is doing his homework, and that he personally had not talked with him about his decision. He said Jeb probably would not announce until after the November 2014 elections and that he would make a great president. He reiterated, “I hope he runs.”
George H.W. is on board. Barbara is on board. George W. is on board. Jeb admitted publicly last week that he’s thinking about it. There seems to be a united front going up with the Bush camp that extends to Bush administration alumni and beyond.
