Last Bush:

USA Today reporter Judy Keen asked Barbara Bush in an interview on the second day of the GOP conclave if this was the last convention at which a Bush would be nominated for President. “Yes,” said the former First Lady, whose younger son, Jeb Bush, governor of Florida, is often mentioned as a potential 2008 presidential candidate. When Keen reminded Mrs. Bush that George W. was not the only politician in her family, Mrs. Bush reiterated her conviction that this was the last convention that would nominate a Bush for President. “I just said yes,” she said. “There are enough of us.”
