Faced with an ever-increasingly-likely general election between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, the first big-name Republican who would defect to Clinton's side has revealed herself, and her name is Laura Bush

She said "I want our next president " whoever he or she might be " to be somebody who is interested in women in Afghanistan and who will continue US policies" that we continue to do what we're committed to do as a country..... That's who I want - or the kind of people that will do that and will pay attention to our history, and know what's what's happened before and know specifically how we can continue to do the good things that we do around the world."

Now while that certainly isnt a clear endorsement of Hillary Clinton, its certainly being interpreted as a sign of her distaste for Donald Trump, and a sign that the distaste for Donald Trump among establishment GOP voters and elected officials is enough to push them into Hillary Clinton's camp.

If Trump can push Laura Bush to siding with Hillary Clinton, then courting votes from undecided centrist voters will be a walk in the park for Hillary

I don't think so, the Bush legacy is not a very good one. I think it'd turn a lot of potential voters off and maybe even court Trump even more voters going off of the anti establishment narrative.

Even Democrats should know when to stay out the Bushes.
