WASHINGTON (AP)—Former first lady Barbara Bush doesn’t appear to think much of Sarah Palin’s White House aspirations, saying the former Alaska governor should stick to her home state.
In an interview with CNN’s Larry King scheduled for airing Monday, Bush says she sat next to Palin once and “thought she was beautiful.”

The outspoken wife of former President George H.W. Bush says Palin, who is considering a presidential run in 2012, seems “very happy in Alaska” but then adds, “I hope she’ll stay there.”
In an excerpt provided by CNN, both Bushes compliment their son, former President George W. Bush, on the success of his recent memoir, “Decision Points.”
The former president says his son has “done a good job selling the darn thing.”
