Barbara Bush: Jeb Should Not Run for President

Lance Shearer/Special to the Daily News
Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush listens during Ave Maria's commencement ceremony Saturday.

Former First Lady Barbara Bush tells C-SPAN there have been enough presidents from the Bush family.

She added that her son Jeb Bush is the "best qualified" to run for President of the United States. However, she hopes that he does not.

As a wife and mother to former presidents, she fears Jeb will inherit all her enemies as well as the enemies of his brother, former President George W. Bush.

And Ms. Bush emphasized there are other families with other "wonderful people" who could run.
