DescriptionFrom ABC interview of Laura Bush at Winter Olympics today, for broadcast on Monday:

Q Before I let you go, one political question, because I'll get fired if I don’t ask at least one political question. The ceremony for Coretta Scott King was just so moving, all the speakers at that. Hillary Clinton has now taken a little bit of the forefront. And I know that you all travel together, and just a week before, she had some very harsh words about this administration, saying it could be one of the worst -- go down in history as one of the worst ever. Is that just politics, is that fair game, or is that out of bounds, a statement like that?

MRS. BUSH: Well, of course I think it’s out of bounds. But I think it’s politics, it’s certainly politics. President Clinton and President Bush and President Bush number 41 who was with us, as well, are in a club together, and really, I think, wives of the Presidents are in a club, as well. We know what it’s like to live in that house. We certainly know what it’s like to have your husband criticized. So I think there’s a certain empathy that we might have for each other that we wouldn’t have maybe for somebody else who said something like that.
