Chelsea Handler -- Forget 'Late Night' ... I've Got Bush on the Brain

Chelsea Handler is supposedly one of many celebs being considered to take over Letterman's "Late Show" gig ... but Friday she only had one thing on her mind -- and it wasn't stupid pet tricks.

Handler was cruising the streets of Miami yesterday after grabbing a bite to eat -- just days after announcing she's leaving the E! network for greener pastures -- wearing a hat that said "Bush Lover"

According to reports ... Handler is in talks with CBS for her own show on the network -- but now that David Letterman announced he's retiring, she's gunning for his legendary seat.

Don't worry ... Chelsea's not going all right wing -- she's not stating sexual preference either -- it's made by a company in South Africa that promotes staying in touch with the earth.

Groovy.
