Laura Bush says she asked George not to make gay marriage 'a significant issue'

Dallas resident and former first lady Laura Bush’s memoirs, “Spoken from the Heart,” won’t be released until next Tuesday, but The New York Times and Politico are already reporting on some of the contents. According to Mike Allen at Politico, one memorable passage appears on Page 303:

“In 2004 the social question that animated the campaign was gay marriage. Before the election season had unfolded, I had talked to George about not making gay marriage a significant issue. We have, I reminded him, a number of close friends who are gay or whose children are gay. But at that moment I could never have imagined what path this issue would take and where it would lead.”

Let’s just hope those “close friends” aren’t friends at all anymore.
