— -- It seems Barbara Bush has changed her mind about whether there have been "enough Bushes" in the White House.

The former first lady and mother of former President George W. Bush announced via Skype to a gala dinner attended by her son Jeb Bush that she's simply changed her mind.

It was two years ago that the wife of former President George H.W. Bush said in response to speculation that her son Jeb would make a run for the presidency that she thought two Bush presidents was enough.

Jeb Bush was talking about his mother's remarks Friday night in Bonita Springs, Fla., at the Celebration of Reading, a carity event sponsored by the Barbara Bush Foundation, when his mother, listening in via Skype, stopped him.

"Jeb, it's Mom," she said. "Listen, what do you mean, 'too many Bushes'? ... I changed my mind."
