A Bush Move I Can Get Behind
Jeb Bush, NFL Commissioner
TALLAHASSEE -- Could Gov. Jeb Bush's future be in football instead of politics?
While U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has publicly flirted with the idea of becoming the next commissioner of the National Football League, Bush has been privately approached to gauge his interest in the job.
Bush, who spends his Sundays each fall watching pro football, acknowledged Tuesday that the NFL job was broached during a recent meeting with Patrick Rooney Sr., owner of the Palm Beach Kennel Club.
Let me just say that I think this is a fabulous idea, both for the NFL and Jeb Bush. Anything that gets a Bush out of politics is a net good as far as I'm concerned, and considering the baggage that Neil and Marvin are carrying around right now, Jeb might be the end of the line politically speaking for the Bush family, at least for a while.
