Laura Bush: No Plans to Seek Office
John McCain, Rudy Giuliani, and company can breathe a sigh of relief:
Despite her popularity, first lady Laura Bush says she’s not interested in running for higher office.
Bush made the declaration Tuesday, telling “Tonight Show” host Jay Leno that she has no aspirations for holding office and doesn’t even pay much attention to her approval ratings though she tracks her husband’s.
The first lady’s approval rating hovered around 80 percent in February, according a USA TODAY/CNN/Gallup Poll, the most recent taken. By contrast, the president’s overall approval rating is at 47 percent, a Washington Post-ABC News poll released Tuesday shows.
Question: Did anyone besides Leno seriously believe that she was giving elected office much thought?
