This day in 2003: Barbara Bush

"Why should we hear about body bags and deaths, and how many, what day it's going to happen, and how many this or what do you suppose? Or, I mean, it's, it's not relevant. So, why should I waste my beautiful mind on something like that?"
Barbara Bush on Good Morning America, March 18, 2003, on the Iraq War, which was launched two days later and has since claimed the lives of more than 3,200 U.S. soldiers (including seven so far this weekend) and countless Iraqis. As quoted by Frank Rich in today's New York Times.
