Barbara Bush Palin - The former first lady told CNN's Larry King something interesting.
Barbara Bush: Palin Should Stick With Alaska. Sarah Palin might belong to the same Republican party, but Barbara Bush is no fan. The former first lady had some words of advice for her -- she hopes Palin stays in Alaska.
Bush, 85, told CNN's Larry King, "I sat next to her once, thought she was beautiful. And I think she's very happy in Alaska -- and I hope she'll stay there," The Washington Post reported.
In the same interview, her husband, President George H.W. Bush, 86, said he is "confused" by the Tea Party, and he doesn't "know what it really is." But, he conceded, "some of [their] ideas make a lot of sense," the Post reported.
Palin, the former Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential candidate, has been increasingly vocal about her purported plans to test the presidential waters in 2012, saying she thinks she could beat President Barack Obama.
