Laura Bush: Sotomayor's a good nominee

“You know, as a woman, I’m proud that there might be another woman on the court and so, we’ll see what happens, but I wish her well,” Bush said.

Another woman Bush said she would be watching is the current first lady, Michelle Obama.

“I like to watch her. I think she’s doing great,” she said. “I mean, I remember what it’s like, those first few months that you live at the White House where you’re still looking for the light switches. … And then to be there with their little girls reminded me a lot of being there with my big girls. … It’s a very, very nice place for family life.”
