Bush 41 Warns More Bushes May Run For Public Office Fox News Sunday launched a new series this week called “American Leaders” that seeks to engage “prominent business, cultural and social figures in candid discussion.” The first “leader” featured by Fox was former President George H.W. Bush, who gave the network an exclusive interview at his Presidential Library.

... Bush also said that he would like to see another generation of Bushes in public office. “I’ve got a grandson that would make a wonderfully able public servant if he ran, George P.,” said Bush. “And Pierce, Neil’s son. They have an interest in politics.” ...

If the next generation of Bushes were to enter public office, it would likely be more of the same politics put forth by the current president:

- George P. Bush, the son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, has been actively involved in his family’s political fortunes since 1988, when he spoke at the Republican National Convention as a 12 year old. He was also heavily involved in his uncle’s 2000 and 2004 campaigns, working on outreach to the Latino community.

- Pierce Bush, the son of high-priced consultant Neil Bush, worked on his Uncle’s 2004 campaign, telling Larry King that “George W.’s done a great job.” He also shares some of his uncle’s frat boy “folksiness.”

LSB: Pierce "frat boy" Bush (shown on the right at a frat party; unidentified devilish fratboy on the left) certainly lives up to his reputation as the President's nephew. Let's hope he grows out of this more so than his father or his uncle.
