In an interview with CNN today, First Lady Laura Bush said that Gov. Sarah Palin (R-AK) doesn’t have the foreign policy experience the McCain campaign has been insisting she has.
CNN: Do you think she has the foreign policy experience that everyone’s criticizing her about?
BUSH: Well, obviously — Of course she doesn’t have that. That’s not been her role. But I think she’s a very quick study, and fortunately, John McCain does have that experience.
Bush’s comments echo those of Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-NE), who recently said of Palin, “I think it’s a stretch to, in any way, to say that she’s got the experience to be president of the United States.”
