Would Jeb Bush vote for Sarah Palin vs Obama? 'You betcha!'

October 22, 2010 |  4:10 pm

Republican former Florida governor Jeb BushIt's Friday. Let's get right to it:

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush was on CNN today with John King.

They talked about numerous things:

That Republican ex-Gov. Bush would like to hear some more substance in today's campaign debates.

And he thinks Republicans in 2012 need a positive agenda that is "big and  bold and aspiritional."

Then, King asked Bush a question off of Facebook: "Would he endorse Palin for president if he does not run himself."

Bush's quick reply: "Well, A, I'm not running. And if Sarah Palin is the nominee and she's running against Barack Obama, you betcha."

So, for at least for one party establishment figure, Sarah Palin could be a unifying factor against you-know-who.
