Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush will join the Obama Administration as a special "education envoy" several sources have told Crowley Political Report.
Bush has been a leading advocate of education reform and many of his ideas have been adopted by the Obama administration.
An announcement is expected early next week.
"This is an opportunity for Jeb to show Obama how education reform should be done," said Sally Tilley, a Bush confidant.
Apparently, Bush received a call from Obama in the wee hours of the morning earlier this week seeking help to revive his education proposals.
Some insiders began to speculate that the move could be a prelude to an Obama/Bush ticket in 2012.
"It would be a shocking combination to many voters" said GOP strategist Chris Maddow.
The move would also disrupt the GOP primaries and raise serious questions if any Republican candidate could defeat the Obama/Bush ticket.
Some GOP party leaders suggest that the best move might be to offer the nomination to U.S. Sen. Rand Paul with the understanding that he would lose but it might prepare him for a 2016 run.
That scenario would become problematic if a successful Obama/Bush administration positioned the former Florida governor to run in 2016 an independent or the head of a new third party of Obama/Bush Demublicans.
