(Newser) – It wasn't an endorsement exactly, but George W. Bush tells Parade magazine that he'd love to see brother Jeb try to become the third Bush in the White House. "That’s for Jeb to figure out, you know what I mean?" he said, laughing. "I would hope that people would judge [him], if Jeb were to run, on his merits and his track record. … So I hope he will run." The former Florida governor hasn't said whether he'll be a candidate in 2016, but he previously said he didn't think he'd face any "baggage" from his brother's presidency, notes the Huffington Post. He's also got a formidable political operation ready to roll. Click for the full Parade interview.
