    Angry Jeb doesn't rule out run for White House.

    BERLIN (Reuters) - Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, the brother of U.S. President George W. Bush, ruled out running for president in 2008 but left open the possibility of a subsequent bid in an interview with a German magazine published on Sunday.

    Jeb Bush, who is scheduled to visit Germany this week, told Focus weekly he had not thought much about running for the office held by his father and older brother except to rule out the next election at the end of George W. Bush's second term.

    "You should never say never. But for the 2008 election, my answer is definitely no," he said, in comments translated into German by the magazine.

    Asked whether his answer meant a later challenge was possible, he said: "Let's say there's a vague chance."

    Bush, 52, said he spoke frequently with his brother and visited the White House whenever he was in Washington but he said the two mainly discussed family matters or sport.

    God help us. I don't think he could ever get in, with the Terry Schivo fiasco, and then Katrina.
    Keep passing the open windows.

    ^^ I believe it was H.L. Mencken who said: "Nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public."

    And before everybody gets their backs up, I am QUOTING someone. As far as I'm concerned you could put any nation in front of the word public and it would still be true.

    YOu are so right Pacific. People think they can vote on 'instinct' rather than on knowledge. Hence, Bush was re-elected.
