Is the U.S. ready for another President Bush?

Is this country ready to say that again? Not a George Bush, at least not yet (read: George P.), but we're talking Jeb Bush? For years he's resisted talk about running for president, but this week he's leaving the door open.

Jeb Bush opens up about White House bid

Asked Monday morning on NBC's "The Today Show" if he was going to run in 2016, Bush said "that's way off in 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."

Pressed by host Matt Lauer on whether he would not rule out a run for president in 2016, Bush answered "I won't. But I won't declare it today either."
