DALLAS (AP) - Former first lady Laura Bush says her husband's
decision not to appear at ground zero with President Barack Obama
after the death of Osama bin Laden is consistent with his desire to
stay out of politics and the public eye.

Laura Bush told The Associated Press on Thursday that former
President George W. Bush "thinks that's for President Obama to do
at this point."

Speaking at a Dallas elementary school after announcing grants
from her foundation for school libraries, Laura Bush said she and
her husband were out to dinner when they received word that Obama
wanted to speak with him. She said he went home to take the call.

Laura Bush says they both felt great pride for military and
intelligence services after hearing the news.
