Send a "get well" card to Barbara Bush
Former First Lady, Barbara Bush, 83, had Heart Surgery yesterday. I met Mrs. "41" many years ago, before she was first lady, and I can honestly say, she was the warmest, most genuine, friendliest woman I have ever met in politics. After reading her book, you realize that she has not lived her life as a leisure seeking socialite. She has been a gritty, hard working woman, who adapted to a rough west Texas environment in a modest home where she raised a large family on her own. She traveled the world at a young age acting as diplomatic support and personal confidante to one of the most experienced and well traveled men ever to hold the office of Vice President or President. And she still had time to raise incredible children, two of which became governors and an eventual President.
This is an incredible American hero, and in the list of impressive women in our history that have served as first lady, she is one of the greatest of them all.
