The organization encourages scholarship and discussions about the U.S. Constitution, and includes a museum with a copy of the U.S. Constitution that was published in a 1787 Pennsylvania newspaper. It served as the venue for then-Sen. Barack Obama's significant speech on race during his 2008 presidential run.
He follows former President Bill Clinton in the role, who began serving in January 2009. Bush's father, former President George H. W. Bush, was elected to the spot in 2007.
The former Florida governor is thought by some to be interested in a 2016 White House run.
