Jeb Bush Says He 'Won't' Rule Out 2016 Run

I know that Republicans must be tempted, because they haven't won the White House without a Bush or a Nixon since 1928, but I think it's safe to say that most Americans have had enough of the Bushes.

LAUER: You've been invited by CPAC to speak before them. You have this new book. It sounds like you're gearing up for a run. Those are the kinds of things people do when they're increasing their public profile. Are you going to run in 2016?

JEB!: That's way off into the future. I have a voice. I want to share my beliefs about how the conservative movement and the Republican Party can regain its footing. Because we've lost our way. [ed. note: See the presidency of Bush, George W.]

LAUER: But you clearly have not ruled out -- you will not definitively rule out a run for president in 2016?

JEB!: I won't, but I'm not going to declare today either, Matt.

"Way off into the future" - LOL. Sure sounds like he's running to me.
