Will Jeb Bush follow in his brother's and father's footsteps by running for president? Time will tell.

Former President George W. Bush has been back in the news a lot this month--first for becoming a grandfather, then for opening his presidential library today, and now for something much more political.

In an interview with ABC's Diane Sawyer, Bush said his younger brother and former Florida Governor Jeb Bush would make "a marvelous candidate if he chooses to do so. He doesn’t need my counsel, 'cause he knows what it is, which is run!"

The former president added that a 2016 showdown between his brother and Hillary Clinton would make "a fantastic photo."
