Laura Bush, on the Record

The ever-insightful First Lady on the Republican Party, lobbying, and Judge Altio.

Here's a taste:
"The whole lobbying aspect of politics is very interesting in the United States," Mrs. Bush said. "There's an important aspect to lobbying, as well.

"I mean, what people don't think of is the American Heart Association or breast cancer research -- each of those groups lobby for federal funds, for very, very important and worthwhile causes in our country," she added. "And so I hope that people realize that there is a role for advocates for different issues."
