COLLEGE STATION, Texas: Former President George W. Bush says his younger brother Jeb should run for president and has the support of the Bush family but ultimately the former Florida governor must make a decision regardless of any family pressure.

Bush's comments Tuesday came during the official launch of his book about former President George H.W. Bush at his dad's presidential library center at Texas A&M University.

The younger Bush says pressure from the family won't matter and only Jeb Bush can decide. He says he's not aware of any timetable for a decision but knows his brother "doesn't like the idea of a political class."

Bush says he wrote the book to show how much he and others care for the 41st U.S. president, while his 90-year-old father is still alive.
