Jeb Bush notes a 'split ballot' on his presidential future

(CNN) - Former first lady Barbara Bush famously said in April that she wasn't a fan of the idea of another Bush running for president, answering a question about her son, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, and his potential 2016 aspirations.

But how does his father, former President George H.W. Bush, feel about the idea? Jeb Bush says there's a "split ballot amongst the Bush senior family" over the issue.

"Pretty sure that's the case," Bush said with laughter in an interview that aired Sunday on ABC's "This Week."

Bush and Bill Clinton. And that number doesn't include the additional money we spend on their lifetime of Secret Service.
