Former Gov. Jeb Bush practically begged ABC News (via the Political Wire) to accept that he will not be a candidate for vice president.
Said Bush: “It’s not in the cards for me. I don’t know how many times I have to repeat this. I have been repeating it for the last two years. I’ve been pretty consistent.”
When pressed, he repeated again: “I am not a candidate. I’m not going to be asked.”
Of course, the reason he keeps getting asked the question is that he said in April that he would “consider it.”
