    Default Elder Bush would like son Jeb to run for president

    George Bush, the president's father, would like to see another Bush in the White House someday, saying on Tuesday that he would want his son Jeb to run for president when the timing is right.

    Florida Governor Jeb Bush has repeatedly said he does not plan to run for president in 2008, trying to dampen speculation that another Bush could be on the next Republican ticket for the White House.

    In an interview on CNN's "Larry King Live," former President Bush said he would want Jeb to run for president "someday," but now was not the time.

    "The timing's wrong. The main thing is, he doesn't want to do it. Nobody believes that," Bush said.

    But he and wife Barbara both said they believed Jeb, 52, did not want to run in the next presidential race.

    Bush said he did not have a favorite candidate for the Republican nomination to succeed his son, President Bush.

    Barbara Bush said she believed Senator and former first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton would be the Democratic nominee in the 2008 presidential race. "I'm not going to vote for her, but I'm betting on her," she said.

    Hillary would be horrible...she make John Kerry seem conservative. The Democrats can't, and won't win with her. They need a canidate leans left but isn't a wacko liberal.

    Wouldn't that be fascinating? No choice BUT a woman for President!

    Another Bush is as distasteful to the left as Hillary is to the right. So you take him off the table, we'll take Hillary off the table, LOL.

    Don't discount Hillary Clinton out on the campaign trail. She is a very persuasive speaker, and has a lot of charisma. We all know from slick Willy and snortin George Dubya that the personal foibles of the candidates aren't as big an issue to the electorate as those on the right try to make them. It's all a big popularity contest. And Hillary will project a great deal of personality, solidity and strength where Kerry didn't.

    Not saying I'd vote for her, or that she's a good choice, etc. Just saying she'd be a good candidate in an election as a matter of observation.

    It will be interesting in 2008 because Hillary will be the democratic nomineee.

    If the Republican's put up a conservative they will lose. However if moderate such as McCain or Rudy can get the nod then they will win.

    It will be interesting to see if the Republican's sell out to win the election or if they choose to lose based on their principles.

    I would say that Jeb stays out of 2008 and if they lose, he will run in 2012.
