This article by Jeff Zeleny for the New York Times discusses the fact that Florida Governor Jeb Bush has yet to endorse a candidate for president. It talks about the intense race going on in Florida between Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich and explains that both candidates have recently been endorsed by several people, but the governor, who is a very sought after endorsement, has yet to give his stamp of approval to any candidate. The article argues that this is likely due to possibility that Bush plans to run for president himself at a later date, and he does not want to potentially antagonize any Republicans who would be willing to back him. This argument is made using ethos by giving quotes from his sons and others who are close to him, and it makes an argument using logos by logically explaining why he might run for president and why he then might choose not to endorse a candidate right now.
