Democrats giddy about Laura Bush‘s recent comments on the presidential election are getting a dose of reality.

Last week, the former first lady was speaking at the Women In The World summit in New York when she made a statement that caused some to jump to the conclusion that Mrs. Bush is “ready for her.”

“I want our next president — whoever he or she might be — to be somebody who is interested in women in Afghanistan and who will continue U.S. policies … that we continue to do what we’re committed to do as a country,” Bush said.

“That’s who I want — or the kind of people that will do that and will pay attention to our history, and know what’s happened before and know specifically how we can continue to do the good things that we do around the world,” she continued.

Did that mean Mrs. Bush was supporting Hillary Clinton for president?

Not so fast according to Freddy Ford of the George W. Bush presidential center.

“They are definitely trying to make this into something it isn’t,” he told CBS News.
