Laura Bush and daughter Jenna appeared on CNN's Larry King Live Thursday.

(CNN) - President Bush was quick to endorse John McCain when the Arizona senator wrapped up his bid for the Republican presidential nomination.

But another Bush might not be so sure.

Speaking with CNN's Larry King Wednesday night, Jenna Bush said she hasn't decided yet who she will vote for in November.

"I don't know," Jenna Bush, daughter of President and Mrs. Bush, said when asked if she will back McCain.

"Of course [I am open]. I mean, who isn't open to learning about the candidates and I'm sure that everybody's like that," she added.

Though the younger Bush conceded she has "been too busy with books to really pay that much attention."

Meanwhile, mother Laura Bush was quick to affirm that she will be voting for the Republican candidate in the fall.

The two appeared on the show to discuss Jenna Bush's upcoming wedding next month.

"[It will be] outdoors, very small wedding, you 'know, very small, all relatives, our families, really, kind of big," Jenna Bush said. “So it's half-family and then half very close friends."

    Regardless if she is President Bush's daughter, who cares what some young rich kid, who has never gone without anything in her life thinks. Give me a break. Is she really going to sway the vote?

    I had the impression that Jena was Daddy's little girl. Good to know she has a mind of her own. There's hope for her yet!

    Best wishes on your wedding.

    How desperate of the Obama Camp (CNN) must be, when they imply a Bush vote for Obama! Do the commenters here really consider that an endorsement? Whatever it takes to feel righteous, I suppose. She is a secret Obama admirer, you know, just like her father...

    Give her credit for standing up and choosing the better candidate. I hope that she will vote for Obama.
    Go Jenna make history.

    Vote for Obama and you WILL be standing in line for toilet paper. You will work for one reason...to pay taxes, and if you think gas is expensive now and the economy is bad now, vote for "Nobama" and you will wish you didn't.

    Its a shame women can join together regardless of what they think of her. They are missing a big opportunity.

    At least the blacks are joining together even when they know he won't do anything for them.

    It appears that the daughter may be just as tongue-tied and inarticulare as the father...

    Good for her not to just jump on her father's bandwagon and decide for herself!
