It’s Friday. Let’s get right to it:

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush was on CNN today with John King.

They talked about numerous things:

That Republican ex-Gov. Bush would like to hear some more substance in today’s campaign debates.


And he thinks Republicans in 2012 need a positive agenda that is ‘big and bold and aspiritional.’

Then, King asked Bush a question off of Facebook: ‘Would he endorse Palin for president if he does not run himself.’

Bush’s quick reply: ‘Well, A, I’m not running. And if Sarah Palin is the nominee and she’s running against Barack Obama, you betcha.’

So, for at least for one party establishment figure, Sarah Palin could be a unifying factor against you-know-who.
