Larry King: So (the Iraq war is) going to be going on when you leave office?
Laura Bush: Probably. I mean I have no idea and there's no way I could predict. But I hope not. I hope that they can build their government and reconcile with each other and build a country. This is their opportunity to seize the moment, to build a really good and stable country. And many parts of Iraq are stable now. But, of course, what we see on television is the one bombing a day that discourages everybody."
Goodness, just one bombing a day, eh, Laura?
