Jeb Bush gets new job, one his father once had ...



This from our friends at the Associated Press:

It might not be the White House, but former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush will follow in his father's footsteps as head of the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia. 

The younger Bush on Thursday was named the next chairman of the Philadelphia museum, a job former President George H.W. Bush held from 2007-2008. Another former president, Bill Clinton, has held the post the last four years. 

Bush, 59, said he feels a cultural shift brewing in the United States. He's been reading up on U.S. and world history to try to prepare for it. 

"I think ... there's going to be a time of cultural change in our country," Bush said, "and typically these have been done in ways that people didn't anticipate. 

"I want to learn about the past so I can think about the future," he said. 

But asked if a run for president is in his future in 2016, Bush demurred and politely changed the topic.
