George P. Bush's suggestion at a Texas rally that the last two Republican presidents – granddad George H.W. Bush and uncle George W. Bush – could vote for Democrat Hillary Clinton is another remarkable sign of the influential family's distaste for Donald Trump and a general election they've conspicuously sat out.Now the only Bush still in elected office isn't ruling out Clinton voters in his family.Trump has bashed the Bush family's legacy, particularly the unpopular Iraq war under George W. Bush, who said while campaigning for brother Jeb that America doesn't "need somebody in the Oval Office who mirrors and inflames our anger and frustration". He did not mention Trump by name.Jeb Bush has said he won't vote for either Trump or Clinton.That leaves Jeb's son, George P. Bush, whose political career is just beginning, as the only one in the family openly endorsing Trump. Milling around a dance hall while waiting for George P. Bush, some Republican voters said they hadn't taken notice of the elder Bushes' silence.
