Mrs. Bush was the wife of the 41st POTUS George Herbert Walker Bush and the mother of the 43rd POTUS George W. Bush. I barely remember her time as our first as at the time I had been in grade school. I remember the dog Millie and more often than not she was certainly a grandmotherly figure and perhaps as a grade schooler I judged her by her appearance.
It's great to see the tributes to her from our current POTUS - who certainly has in his own way ran afoul of the Bush family. Just think about it
Also MSNBC has often been maligned as a heavily left-wing news network and it's good to see them do this story of national significance the way it deserves to be done. I hope they would do it for the other first ladies because what ever roles they have with regards to the Presidency they've earned their stature. Barbara Bush surely has.
