After NBC5 News at 10 is over, the producers, anchors, editors and pretty much whoever wants to join in frequently spend a few minutes in the newsroom talking about the stories of the day (or maybe the latest video on UTUBE) – whatever comes up that’s interesting.
Lately, as you can imagine, we’ve been talking a lot about politics. We speculate about who McCain and Obama will pick to run with them and what happened to Hillary, among other things.
Here’s an interesting idea that came up last night: Laura Bush for President in 2012.
Knowing the First Lady, I would say there’s no way that will ever happen. I think Laura Bush will be extremely happy to come home to Texas and relax. She’s made great use of her position but she never really wanted the spotlight.
But can you think of a better candidate? Mrs. Bush is poised, intelligent, well thought of by Republicans and Democrats alike. And she IS a Texan. She’s a woman who might win the White House, if she wanted to.
