In an interview with Jay Leno Tuesday night on NBC's "The Tonight Show," the former president said his brother should "run for President if he wants to. He'd be a great one."

In a wide-ranging, onstage interview at the 92nd Street Y in New York City, Bush said he didn't necessarily agree with his mother, who joked there have been "enough Bushes" in the White House.

Bush prescribes conservative blueprint for Washington

(CNN) - A prominent figure in the Republican party and one to watch as 2016 approaches, Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush Monday night offered a fiscal and social blueprint for the conservative movement, pushing for economic freedom and a repeal of Obamacare.

Speaking before a crowd of who's-who in the Republican Party, Bush decried Washington's current fiscal path as bogged down with unnecessary bureaucratic regulations and laden with policies that benefit the rich while disenfranchising the working-class.

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."
