My favorite Barbara Bush moment

When Barbara Bush concluded her commencement address at Wellesley College in 1990, she asked her audience to consider this possibility:

“Who knows? Somewhere out in this audience may even be someone who will one day follow in my footsteps, and preside over the White House as the president’s spouse. I wish him well.”

Presumably she and Abigail Adams are now getting to know each other, joined in conversation by Lady Bird Johnson, Jacqueline Kennedy, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Martha Washington.

Oh to be a fly on the wall!
