Papa Bush: 'I'd Like To See Him [Jeb] Be President'

Another Bush in the White House?

The father of the outgoing president still thinks it's a good idea for Jeb Bush to make a White House run, but admits that the public probably thinks there's been too many Bushes in the White House lately.

In an interview on Fox News Sunday, former President George H.W. Bush says he hopes his son Jeb runs for the Senate in Florida and maybe even president.

"I think he’d be an outstanding senator ... I’d like to see him be president some day,"  Bush the elder said. "Right now is probably a bad time because maybe we’ve had enough Bushes in there."

The former president said he's obviously biased, though. "Of course you’ve got to discount that because he’s my son."
