Remember when Barbara Bush poo-pooed her son Jeb's presidential ambitions by saying "we've had enough Bushes" in the White House?

She's now singing a different tune.

The Bush family matriarch, speaking via Skype Friday evening to a Bonita Springs, Florida, crowd, said that she may indeed support her son's bid for president.

“I’ve changed my mind" about there being too many Bushes in the White House, she said.

As the Dallas Morning news reported, a joking Jeb quipped, “Hey mom, can I get that in writing by the way?”

He then called her the greatest mother in the world.

Jeb, the former governor of Florida, would be the third Bush in the White House, should he win the 2016 race.

He has emerged as a Republican frontrunner in some polling, though in the recent Drudge Report poll he was beaten out by the likes of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul.
