DETROIT (AP) — It's a question Jeb Bush gets often: How does he plan to distinguish himself from his brother, former President George W. Bush?

In public, Jeb Bush offers nothing but love and respect for his older brother. More than six years after leaving the presidency, Bush still divides Americans, but less so now than upon his exit from the White House.

In private, Jeb Bush notes that they differ and see the world differently.

On Wednesday, Jeb Bush will speak to the Chicago Council on Global Affairs to offer his views on the U.S. role in the world.

Questions about his brother's guidance of the country after 9/11 and the subsequent invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq are likely to come up during the question-and-answer session to follow.
