The next-generation George Bush could be getting ready for the political spotlight. George Prescott Garnica Bush, 36, is the son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, the nephew of Dubya, and the grandson of George HW Bush. And while that pedigree has always made him a potential political contender, he still sounds iffy when discussing such a career. "I'm weighing that in my own mind," he says. "I'm not specifically looking at anything right now, but yeah, I'd be open to it."

If he does decide to enter politics, he'll be remarkably well-equipped. A GOP consultant says "P," as he's called, "has intellect, personality, good looks, business experience, military service, is bilingual and half Hispanic, and the family connections don't hurt." A lawyer who has acted as GOP liaison to young and Hispanic voters, Bush attended Rice University, taught at an inner-city school, started his own investment firm, and served in the Navy in Afghanistan. "It's as if the ruling class kept pumping out new, less WASPy, more modern products to keep up with changing demand," marvels the Atlantic. Congressional or Texas state office could be on the cards as early as 2014, watchers say. (More George P Bush stories.)
