This could be awkward: Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush will award former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton with the 2013 Liberty Medal at the National Constitution Center on Sept. 10.

Bush, chairman of the National Constitution Center, is a potential contender for the 2016 Republican nomination for president.  Clinton is already considered a front-runner for the Democratic nomination in that race.

“Former Secretary Clinton has dedicated her life to serving and engaging people across the world in democracy,” Bush said in a news release just issued by the National Constitution Center. “These efforts as a citizen, an activist, and a leader have earned Secretary Clinton this year’s Liberty Medal.”

The release said Clinton is being honored for her "lifelong career in public service and her ongoing advocacy efforts on behalf of women and girls around the globe."
