Former first lady Barbara Bush gave her stamp of approval for a Jeb Bush 2016 presidential run Friday.
Two years ago, she didn’t quite feel the same way. On the Today show she said that there had been enough Bush’s in the White House. “There’s other people out there who are very qualified and we’ve had enough Bush’s,” said Barbara Bush.
But at a gala Friday, the Bush matriarch told an audience via Skype, “I changed my mind.” She said the nation’s problems were so big, “it doesn’t matter what your last name is.”
