Bush also joked that she was looking forward to tomorrow’s election “because it seems like George has been on the ticket this entire time” – a clear reference to Democrats’ attempts to link McCain with President Bush.

Bush also praised Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), who didn’t actually attend the rally. McConnell’s camp claimed it was “not due to the low popularity of President Bush.”
