Former president George H.W. Bush told Fox’s Chris Wallace that he has high hope for Jeb Bush’s political future.

Partial transcript

WALLACE: Let me ask you about, speaking of other sons, the president has been quite open in saying that he would like to see his brother Jeb run for the Senate from Florida. What do you think of that idea?

BUSH: I think if Jeb wants to run for the Senate from Florida he ought to do it. He’d be an outstanding Florida. He’s a guy who really has a feel for people, the issues in Florida and nationally and his political days ought not to be over says his old father. If he decides they should be over, that’s fine, too. He needs to make a living, support his wife and family but he’s a good man, chris.

WALLACE: In terms of public service and ability to help the country, you’d like to see him run.

BUSH: I’d like to see him run. I’d like to see him be president some day.
