President Laura?

Posted: Updated:

Has anyone else noticed Laura Bush getting a wee bit political of late? First there was her surprisingly vocal stance on the Myanmar crisis, then her public snubbing of Iran's President Ahmadinejad at the U.N.

Could it be that, in some strange Republican back room, they're tearing a page from the Clinton playbook and plotting a "Laura Strategy?" Looking around at the potential Republican candidates, it's easy to see why they'd do it. There's just not that much on the horizon. And I'm pretty sure her approval ratings are exponentially better than anyone else in the administration.

Sure, call me paranoid, even crazy, but then remember how people once scoffed at the thought of "President Hillary."

(While we're on the subject of Presidential succession, it's worth taking a quick moment to look at this short, beautiful film created by Andrew Sloat.)
