US: "Teaching School, Being Librarian, is not a real job" says Mrs. Heinz

Randy Black writes: I had to chuckle when I read John Kerry’s wife’s personal attack on First Lady Laura Bush. Judge for yourself. In an interview with USA Today, Mrs. Kerry was asked how she is different from First Lady Laura Bush. Mrs. Heinz-Kerry: Well, you know, I don't know Laura Bush. But she seems to be calm, and she has a sparkle in her eye, which is good. But I don't know that she's ever had a real job ­ I mean, since she's been grown up. Randy says: Laura Bush was a public school teacher and librarian in the Houston, Dallas and Austin school system after earning her degree in education from SMU and her masters in library science from the University of Texas at Austin.


RH:  She later apologized. I find them both attractive in different ways.
