    Gov. Bush Says He's Really, Really Not Running For President

    POSTED: 10:54 am EST November 9, 2004
    UPDATED: 11:04 am EST November 9, 2004
    TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Read his lips. Gov. Jeb Bush really, really isn't interested in succeeding his brother in the White House or running for the U.S. Senate in 2006.

    He's not kidding. So stop asking. At least until 2008.

    Bush reiterated Tuesday that he's not going to run for the Senate when Florida has a seat up in '06, has no designs on the 2008 presidential race and he's getting tired of the question.

    So the natural follow-up question?

    "Might you change your mind?" asked a reporter.

    "No!" the exasperated governor responded as he entered a state Cabinet meeting Tuesday morning. "Why am I not believable on this subject? This is driving me nuts."

    But before making that clear, he dodged a question on whether he might "eventually" run for president.

    "Eventually, what's that?" Bush asked after a sigh and before launching into his oft-repeated pledge to finish his second four-year term as governor, which ends in January 2007.

    "I'm not running for the United States Senate in 2006 and I'm not running for president in 2008."

    He never got back to the question about "eventually."

    So is that a "no" or a "maybe"?
    .
    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    Rumors have it the next repub nominee will be Chuck Hagel

    His campaign has already purchased hagel2008.com and ChuckHagel2008.com.

    Blackboxvoting has a story on it. In 2003 Hagel discussed the possibility and has been considered for VP a couple times....

    Hagel's an interesting guy....

    Ancient Bush family proverb; Give a man a fish and he'll eat for a day... drown him in the lake and he'll never be hungry again.

    Any Which Way.... because there's more to it than Fox tells you.
