Barbara Bush: No more political family dynasties

In an interview airing Monday on C-SPAN as part of the channel’s First Ladies series, the Bush matriarch says she isn’t too keen on Jeb making a presidential bid, citing her belief the country should look beyond just “Kennedys, Clintons, Bushes.”

“If we can’t find more than two or three families to run for higher office, that’s silly. Because there are great governors and great eligible people to run,” Bush said in the interview. “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.”
