Former president Bush hopes brother Jeb runs for White House: CNN

Former President George W. Bush said he wants his brother Jeb to run for president in 2016, in an interview with CNN released on Thursday.

"I hope Jeb runs," Bush told CNN. "I think he would be a great president. I have no clue what's going on in his mind and we will talk when he's ready. I noticed he's moving around the country quite a bit."

Jeb Bush, a former governor of Florida, has said he will make a decision on whether to run after November's congressional elections. His older brother served as president from 2001 to 2009, and his father, George H.W. Bush, served in the White House from 1989 to 1993.

Jeb Bush has been touring the country delivering speeches and raising money for Republicans, though he has been less open about possible presidential ambitions than some other contenders.

He is seen as a favorite of Republican donors who are more moderate than the Tea Party and he performs well in preliminary national polls, which are rarely predictive this far ahead of elections.

Bush has also begun wading into the midterm elections: on Thursday he endorsed Thom Tillis, a moderate Republican running for his party's nomination for Senate in North Carolina.

Still in the early stages of considering a run, Bush came under fire from conservatives in early April for characterizing illegal immigration as an "act of love."

"Hey Jeb, if you need some advice, give me a call," said the former president, who has kept a low profile since leaving the White House.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
