Jeb Bush has Jeb Bush leaves open White House bid.

Florida Gov.Jeb Bush, the brother of U.S. President George W. Bush, ruled out running for president in 2008 but left open the possibility of a subsequent bid in an interview with a German magazine published on Sunday.

Jeb Bush, who is scheduled to visit Germany this week, told Focus weekly he had not thought much about running for the office held by his father and older brother except to rule out the next election at the end of George W. Bush’s second term.

“You should never say never. But for the 2008 election, my answer is definitely no,” he said, in comments translated into German by the magazine.

Asked whether his answer meant a later challenge was possible, he said: “Let’s say there’s a vague chance.”

And why not?

Jeb has been a great Governor of a populous state, Florida and a national political player fo some time.

Flap has had the opportunity to meet Jeb and is impressed……more so than with his brother the President.

Flap could foresee a possible vice presidential nomination on a Giuliani ticket. He has more standing and persona than Romney or Allen. Should Jeb decline then there is Kay Bailey Hutchison.

Robert Novak has HUTCHISON IN ’08.

Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison has approached Republican fund-raisers in her home state of Texas to test the waters for a possible 2008 presidential nomination, but party sources believe she is mainly interested in a vice presidential nomination.

Supporters describe Hutchison as saying that if Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton is the Democratic nominee, the Republicans must consider putting a woman on their ticket. Hutchison, who has held statewide elective office for 15 years, would head the list for the GOP.

National ambitions may have factored into Hutchison’s decision against challenging Gov. Rick Perry in a bloody Republican primary for governor next year. Hutchison chose instead to seek re-election to the Senate.


Giuliani and Hutchison vs. Hillary and Richardson.

Sounds like a probable race…….. but McCain and Allen may have something to say about it.

Stay tuned…….
