Former President George W. Bush said that chances are “50-50” that his brother Jeb Bush (R) will run for president in 2016, The Hill reports.
Said Bush: “You know, it’s a lot of speculation about him. I occasionally fuel the speculation by saying that I hope he runs. I think he’d be a very good president. I understand the decision making process pretty well. And I’m– I– you know, I know that he’s wrestling with the decision.”
He added: “He knows exactly — you know, the ramifications on family, for example. He’s seen his dad and his brother go through the presidency. I would give it– I’d give it a toss up. I know this about Jeb. He is not afraid to succeed. In other words, I think he knows he could do the job. And nor is he afraid to fail.”Save to Favorites
