Bush declined to comment for this article but was expected to make an announcement perhaps as early as this week. Even with his father on national TV Sunday touting Bush as a terrific potential future senator or president, friends say family considerations...

    In an ever-shrinking news cycle and political memory to match, I just thought I'd provide a little link to a very controversial book that was being released just before the election, four short years ago. Anyone remember 'The Family: The Real Story of the Bush Dynasty'? Well, not necessarily, that anyone remembers, since so few people bought the scandal monger's tripe.Ann will be fine, but NBC would do well to remember how much time it found for Kitty Kelly's controversy.

    How George torpedoed Jeb's presidential hopes and sank the family's political dynasty. Will America close the books on the Bush dynasty when George W. leaves office in January? Or is it still possible that his younger brother, Jeb, will rise from the ashes of the second Bush presidency -- perhaps even as part of the Bush clan's ongoing duel with the House of Clinton? While one should never say never in politics, such a rematch in 2012 or 2016 is beginning to seem extremely unlikely. Even Jeb himself apparently regards prospects for a Bush resurrection as largely hopeless. To understand...

The first President Bush likes the idea as well. Jeb Bush the Republican governor of Florida, has one asset that his presidential brother doesn't right now — approval from most of his constituents.

    Which was a more important political dynasty in American life, the Kennedy dynasty or the Bush one? Did either the Kennedys or the Bushes leave behind a coherent philosophy of government? Which dynasty left a deeper mark on the American character and memory? Let's start by acknowledging that the Kennedys are in eclipse now. The senior lion of the clan, Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (news, bio, voting record), is a year away from age 75; he's clearly never going to be president. His son, Patrick, is a congressman from Rhode Island but is unlikely to reach the top of the...

    US President George W Bush might have the weight of the world on his shoulders but he is also a concerned father. "We are also trying to get our daughters married," Bush told Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Rajasekhara Reddy, who informed him that his son and daughter were both married and that he has four grandchildren. Bush and his wife Laura arrived in Hyderabad on a five-hour visit during which he met farmers, scientists and women members of self-help groups at the Acharya NG Ranga Agriculture University and met young entrepreneurs at the Indian School of Business.

    Former president Bill Clinton has been buddying up to both presidents Bush in what strategists right and left view as a bid to salvage his political legacy and boost the ambitions of his senator wife. "My new brother" is what Republican President George W. Bush called Clinton, a Democrat, in a weekend interview. At the president's request, Clinton has lined up with Bush's father, the Republican he ousted from the presidency 13 years ago, to help victims of the 2004 tsunami in Asia and the 2005 hurricane in the southern United States. "Clinton beat a Bush, then was replaced by...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President George W. Bush says Bill Clinton has become so close to his father that the Democratic former president is like a member of the family.

    Former president George Bush's personal chef remembers the time that Barbara Bush conspired with him to try to slip a broccoli salad past his boss. As president, Bush famously proclaimed his disdain for the cruciferous vegetable, declaring that he never liked it since his mother had made him eat it as a child. So readers of Ariel De Guzman's The Bush Family Cookbook may be surprised to find a broccoli salad as one of the more than 200 favourite family recipes included in the collection. The salad, which combines broccoli with red onions, golden raisins, crumbled bacon and toasted sunflower...

    The Bush generations have enriched themselves while impoverishing the presidency.AT THIS point, the policy legacy of George Bush seems pretty well defined by three disparate disasters: Iraq in foreign affairs, Katrina in social welfare, corporate influence over tax, budget and regulatory decisions. As a short-term political consequence, we may avoid another dim-witted Bush in the White House. But what the Bush dynasty has done to presidential campaign science — the protocols by which Americans elect presidents in the modern era — amounts to a political legacy that can haunt the Republic for years to come. We are now enduring the...

    First daughter Barbara Bush was wearing a ring on the third finger of her left hand Wednesday, but the White House said she is not engaged. Susan Whitson, spokeswoman for the first lady, said the jewelry that the 24-year-old had on during a visit to Children's National Medical Center with her mother was not an engagement or wedding ring. At the hospital on Wednesday, first lady Laura Bush showed a home video of White House holiday life -- from the first dogs' point of view -- to a group of patients, their families and staff Laura Bush showed the video...
