    Her analysis is on the money. Her point about Laura Bush (having never made a mistake as first lady) is seemingly trivial but also profound in its own right, it sort of defines the bush presidency (not in never making a mistake, but never embarassing the country). Bush has never gone overseas like Clinton and Pappy and Carter used to and return with his tail tucked between his legs. He's stayed strong, changed tone as needed but remained his own man and kept his administration together, despite some crucial media bias and the rogue agent Colin Powell.

    She's always good, while once in awhile over the top, this is not one of those times.

    Agreed. We all have our bad days anyway. I wish I could afford a subscription to the WSJ (i probably can but waste money on other stuff)
