Super Tuesday: Barbara Bush Speaks!

At the George W. Bush Presidential Center, at Southern Methodist University, Former First
Lady Laura Bush, and her mother-in-law, Former First Lady Barbara Bush, participated in a discussion about the influence of First Ladies. The discussion was moderated by Presidential historian Doris Kearns Goodwin.

In the Dallas Morning News, David Flick reports:

The 2012 presidential campaign has eight months to go, but former first lady Barbara Bush has already given it a bad review.

“I think it’s been the worst campaign I’ve ever seen in my life,” she said Monday at Southern Methodist University during a daylong conference on the influence of the nation’s first ladies. “I hate that people think compromise is a dirty word. It’s not a dirty word.”

The comment, which drew applause from the audience of about 300, came about midway through an hourlong discussion with daughter-in-law and fellow former first lady Laura Bush.

I couldn’t agree more.
