Florida's 43rd governor said he's on call should Gov. Rick Scott need him. "My role in life as a former is to be on call," said former Gov. Jeb Bush, who was in Tallahassee for Scott's swearing in ceremony. "If the new guy calls, I'll give him my advice. He doesn't have to take it. I won't tell anybody that I gave it. I won't be offended if he doesn't take it. If he doesn't call me, my life goes on. No big deal either. So, I want him to succeed and if being successful means getting out of the way, I can do that too." Bush's education advocacy group, however, will likely play a big role in advising Scott on education policy. His top aide, Patricia Levesque, led Scott's education transition team, which put out a policy paper advising the new governor on several policies championed by Bush.
