Drafting Jeb Bush for governor

It was only a matter of time:

Dear Gov. Bush,

With the recent announcement that Gov. Crist will run for Mel Martinez' U.S. Senate seat, Floridians need to make certain proven leadership is restored to the Executive Office of Governor. During this exceptional period of financial unrest and the historic unemployment rate in Florida, we need an exceptional solution and leader to steer us through this.

Responds Bush: Um, no.

 "Governor Bush is not considering a 2010 gubernatorial run in Florida. He will continue to play a constructive role in the future of the Republican Party, advocating conservative solutions to the 21st century challenges we face, specifically in the area of education," said spokeswoman Kristy Campbell.
