Teresa goes too far sometimes. That was uncalled for, and I hate to see women saying those types of things.

Being a Mother is a REAL JOB, the hardest one on earth, same goes for being a Father. So even if Laura never did anything other than that, I have the utmost respect for her.

Not that the election should be about this stuff anyway, but

True. I thought everyone knew that Laura Bush had worked as both a teacher and a librarian. I think this is an excellent background for a political wife, she knows what it's like to get out there, clock in and deal with all of the pressures and stresses of ordinary occupational life. That being said I also really like Teresa. She has unique experiences, as a young working emigrant and such, that are valuable to anyone no matter what they are doing, including public life. I'm glad we're not voting for First Lady, I wouldn't know who on earth to vote for. I like both Laura and Teresa very much.

Eh, the problem is that Theresa speaks her mind and sometimes she's like me -- speaks before thinking. At least she speaks. I rarely see anything about Laura going out and doing anything in the capacity of First Lady. Hell, I bought a "Just Say No" button in fourth grade when Nancy Reagan told me drugs were bad. What has Laura done as First Lady?

I like Theresa. so she says what's on her mind sometimes? At least she has a mind and is a strong woman that she doesn't feel threatened to hold her tongue.

Laura Bush, as First Lady, has adopted a more traditional approach for a political wife than has Heinz Kerry. It's their personalities, and not something they have a ton of control over, alot of choice. Laura is simply being herself, and so is Teresa. This is refreshing in a world of phoney scripted characters and I just wish citizens of all political persuasions could accept this.

Gina,
I appreciate when you put your partianship aside and call a spade a spade.
Good on ya.

Diginity and class is something that cannot be bought. I think the First Lady has that all over Ms Heinz.

Well I'm not into determining who has more dignity and/or class. I happen to assume they're both classy ladies w/ different approaches to life and manners of expressing themselves. I have always thought Laura is a lovely and classy lady.


"Laura Bush said Thursday that Teresa Heinz Kerry didn't need to apologize for saying she couldn't remember whether the first lady had ever had "a real job.

"She apologized but she didn't even really need to apologize," Mrs. Bush told reporters at a coffee shop before attending a rally for President Bush. "I know how tough it is and actually I know those trick questions."

Good for Laura. She knows everything there is to know about being a high profile political wife and then some and it shows. She's definitely qualified to be First Lady. I think Teresa is also, she's just different, and Laura understands that.

I give Laura credit for that. classy.

And why can't our First Ladies have spines? What would we have done without Elenore Roosevelt?

What constitutes a First Lady having or not having "a spine"?

One can admit they regret what they said and apologize.

One can commit vehicular manslaughter and use one's family status to have it hushed up.

I almost included that in my post. i believe TK got/ used his status to evade justice.

I believe Laura got special treatment when she killed someone too.


Edwards is right we do have two Americas.
