Jeb Bush in 2016? The National Review thinks so, and has put the Republicans’ favorite non-candidate on its Feb. 21 cover, Politico reports

The mag hails the former Florida governor for building an image of himself as the “education governor” and of “quietly building a legacy as something other than the Bush who didn’t reach the Oval Office.”

“We’ve been picking up a lot of interest about Jeb in ’12 among conservatives," said National Review editor Rich Lowry in an email to Politico. "We’ve put him on the cover in light of that, and of his continuing importance in the broader policy debate.”

Bush dismisses a 2012 run, but what about 2016?

“I sure hope a Republican is running for reelection then,” Bush said. “But I’ve learned never to say never.” Then he added: “Right now, I still have a voice and I intend to use it.”
