(Newser) – Jeb Bush doesn’t think too highly of Sarah Palin. Asked how he felt about Alaska’s ex-governor in a recent Newsmax interview, Bush replied that Palin was a “natural” with a lot of “charisma.” But to be a good candidate for higher office, she’ll need to add a “depth of understanding of the complexity of life we're living in today."

“That’s up to her,” he added. “I mean, I don’t know what her deal is, but my belief is in 2010 and 2012, public leaders need to have intellectual curiosity.” You can see the video of the interview here. (Read more Jeb Bush stories.)
