Former First Lady Barbara Bush talks about whether another member of the Bush family, specifically Jeb Bush, should run for President in an exclusive interview with C-SPAN for its First Ladies series. More information here: http://cs.pn/1dCBMPZ
"I think this is a great American country, great country, and if we can't find more than two or three families to run for high office, that's silly, because there are great governors and great eligible people to run. And I think that the Kennedys, Clintons, Bushes, there are just more families than that. And I'm not arrogant enough to think that we alone are raising, but we're -- we're raising public servants, whether they're feeding the poor, like Lauren is, who's fed 68 million children around the world, or Barbara, who's bringing global health to the world, or Pierce is working for Big Brothers, Big Sisters.
But there are a lot of ways to serve. And being president is not the only one. And I would hope that someone else would run, although there's no question in my mind that Jeb is the best qualified person to run for president, but I hope he won't, because I think he'll get all my enemies, all his brother's, all -- and there are other families. I refuse to accept that this great country isn't raising other wonderful people."
