Barbara Bush has spent recent weeks in the hospital for breathing difficulties.
But before that the former First Lady granted a long interview to the calm cameras of C-SPAN for its revealing two-year series of profiles on the nation’s first ladies.
Monday’s program will examine the influence and image of presidential wives and will focus entirely on the spouse of President No. 41 and mother of President No. 43. It airs on C-SPAN and C-SPAN3 tonight at 9 p.m. Eastern.
The program contains the video excerpt below, as well as others in which the outspoken lady discusses her advice for first ladies and her thoughts on another son, Jeb, maybe running to occupy the White House someday.
