Laura Bush Calls Palin 'Quick Study'

ABC News' Lisa Chinn Reports: First Lady Laura Bush told CNN on Wednesday that McCain running mate Sarah Palin does not have foreign policy experience but downplayed its significance by saying that the Alaska governor is a "quick study."

"Well, obviously, of course, she does not have that," said Mrs. Bush when asked if Palin has foreign policy experience. "That has not been her role, but I think that she is a very quick study and fortunately John McCain does have that experience."

Asked if Palin has been treated unfairly, Mrs. Bush, replied, "I do believe so. But it is to be expected," adding, "I think that Sarah Palin is plenty tough, and I think that is what we will find out."
