Jeb Bush to Chair National Constitution Center

Jeb Bush

Move over Bill Clinton. The former President is handing over the keys to the National Constitution Center to former Florida Governor Jeb Bush.

He’s the son of former President George H.W. Bush and brother of former President George W. Bush.

Based in Center City Philadelphia, the National Constitution Center is a central location for study and celebration of the founding fathers and their legacy. It’s across Independence Mall from Independence Hall. It’s a non-partisan non-profit.

“I am honored to have this opportunity and am humbled to follow in the footsteps of my beloved father, President George H.W. Bush, who first exemplified to me what it means to be a good citizen and to uphold the ideals expressed within the U.S. Constitution,” said Bush in a center press release. “I will do my best to advance the Center’s mission and continue the vision set forth by President Clinton’s leadership these last three years.”

“It has been a great honor to serve as the Center’s Board Chairman for the past three years, and I couldn’t be more pleased that Governor Bush will lead this world-class museum into the future,” said Clinton, the outgoing Chair.  “Governor Bush will be an eloquent spokesman for the Center’s mission and will work well with all of the Center’s supporters regardless of party.”

  1. Maybe now I can finally learn to understand how the Constitution was stretched to accomodate the Florida voter purge carried out by Katherine Harris and supervised by Jeb in the 2000 presidential election.

  2. Gov Bush comes to Philly…..sounds like the Philadelphia GOP has a chance to give him a welcoming reception when he first comes to town, start a dialogue with him while supporting his work at the Constitution Center.

    Maybe they’ll talk about building out the GOP (politics and policy) with him and continue to put themselves on the map by playing big, national ball while growing their local base.

    Maybe Joe DeFelice and the Philly/SEPA gang are already on it….those guys are certainly ambitious enough…

  3. I wonder if Jeb will use this opportunity to teach the GOP about the REAL Constitution.
