Bush for Romney

by Robert Costa

Former president George H.W. Bush, that is.

The elder Bush said that Romney would make a “very good president” in an interview with CNN’s Larry King Monday night.

Asked by King who his personal favorite in 2012 is, Bush said, “Well, I mentioned [my son] Jeb, but he’s not going to try. So, I don’t. I don’t really. If you asked me, who will the nominee be, I couldn’t tell you. We like Mitt Romney. We know him well and like him very much.”

In the latest Quinnipiac poll, Romney bests Obama, 45 percent to 44 percent.
