Jeb Bush not running for senate in 2010

Like he can win? After his brother George W. Bush destroyed this country and our international standing? Like folks are lined up to pull the lever for another Bush? Please. I don't care how often Papa Bush goes on television hawking his younger son, we don't want any more of the name BUSH.

Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, brother of U.S. President George W. Bush, on Tuesday ruled out running for a Senate seat he had been considering contesting.

Bush, who was a popular Republican governor, said in a statement he would not run in 2010 for the Florida Senate seat that is being vacated by Republican Sen. Mel Martinez.

"While the opportunity to serve my state and country during these turbulent and dynamic times is compelling, now is not the right time to return to elected office," he said.

Good riddance.
