Former first lady Barbara Bush appears to be just fine with having only one son as president.
In an interview with the Today Show’s Matt Lauer before this morning’s opening of the George W. Bush Presidential Library, the Bush family matriarch didn’t sound too excited over a 2016 bid by her other son, former Florida Republican Gov. Jeb Bush.
“He’s by far the best qualified man but no, I really don’t,” Barbara Bush said when asked whether she thinks Jeb will run. “I think it’s a great country there are a lot of great families. It’s not just four families or whatever. There are other people out there who are very qualified and we’ve had enough Bushes.”
But some of the former governor’s other family members sounded more supportive.
“He’d be a wonderful president,” former First Lady Laura Bush said of her brother-in-law. “But who knows? We don’t know and we’re just letting him decide.”
