Barbara Bush was on NBC's Today show yesterday morning. Among other things, she was asked her thoughts about her son, Jeb, running for the presidency in 2016.
She replied, "We've had enough Bushes."
No word on her response when receiving an email from Jeb, "Thanks, mom."
With Mother's Day coming up on May 12, I suspect there is at least one order of flowers being cancelled today.
But even closer than that, I'm sure the whole Bush family will be gathering next Wednesday for the official, public opening of the George W. Bush Presidential Library. I have this image of Jeb walking up to his mother, looking at the entire clan that came there from all over and saying to her, "Do you think we have enough Bushes here, too, mom?"
That said, this is one of the first times I've agreed with the former First Lady. We had one too many Bushes. A case could be made for two too many, but I'm willing to compromise.
