KRANJ, Slovenia (AP) First lady Laura Bush acknowledged President Bush's unpopularity but said Monday that history will vindicate her husband's two-term presidency.
In an interview on ABC's Good Morning America, Laura Bush noted the ousting of the Taliban in Afghanistan and Saddam Hussein in Iraq.
I know he may not be that popular right now, but we've liberated two countries 50 million people have been liberated from very brutal regimes and I think that's really important, she said.
She said the president has stood on the side of emerging democracies in central Europe.
He's going to have a really unbelievably great legacy, with the advantage of hindsight, she said.
Mrs. Bush flew to Slovenia on Sunday after making an unannounced trip to Afghanistan her third as first lady. She is here with Bush for his final U.S.-European Union Summit, and is accompanying him to other European capitals.
