Jeb: Thanks for the memories -- and toiletries

After his official portrait was unveiled yesterday, outgoing Gov. Jeb Bush spoke with reporters and said he’ll not just miss those loyal to him or the chance to make a difference as Florida’s chief executive, he’ll leave behind fond memories of the governor’s mansion.

Especially the perks of the Executive Restrooms.

"What am I going to miss about the mansion? It’s beauty, it’s tradition, the food (chuckles), the hot water. The hot water and the water pressure is unbelievable. I told Charlie, be careful… in Miami, you know, water doesn’t come on that fast and it doesn’t come on immediately hot….

"Fresh towels all you want. I don’t know how it is in your life, but most of the time, you know, most people you take showers, you use towels six or seven times before you put  the next one on. Here, although I’ve been trained to do otherwise, it’s just any time I want I can have many towels."
