Laura disses Hillary

From Drudge:


First Lady Laura Bush believes Hillary Clinton did not keep good house during her time as first lady, a new book will charge.

Ron Kessler, a former investigative reporter for the WASHINGTON POST and the WALL STREET JOURNAL, is set to unleash his account of Laura Bush.

On December 18, 2000, just after the Supreme Court ruled on the election, Hillary Clinton gave Laura Bush a tour of the White House. The incoming-First Lady was dismayed at what she saw: Not only were carpets and furnishings fraying and in disrepair in the West Wing and public areas, the Oval Office was done in loud colors—red, blue, and gold! The East Wing was cut up into small offices and had exposed electrical conduits. Many of the furnishings looked dated.

Laura Bush noted how the Lincoln Bedroom looked worn out.

The jokes surrounding that last line practically write themselves.

Maybe I’m reading too much into it… but I think actually speaks quite a bit to the difference in attitude between the two women, concerning women’s roles as a housewife. On the other hand, maybe it extends to their husbands as well, and interior decoration is just something the Bush’s obsess over. Whereas the Clintons were more concerned with, you know, running the country.
