I saw Jenna Bush on the Today Show last week (it’s good background noise when I’m awake two hours earlier than I need to be) and she seemed a bright and well-reasoned young woman. Jenna was promoting her new book, Ana’s Story: A Journey of Hope, and doing a bang up job of it.
This weekend, Dana Goldstein’s column in The American Prospect sheds some more insight into the contradiction that is Jenna Bush:
As her father threatens to veto the entire $34 billion 2008 foreign aid budget just because congressional Democrats have finally snuck in loopholes providing condoms and abortion services to women in the developing world, Jenna is on a nationwide book tour and media blitz, spreading the message that safe sex and education are some of the most important tools in fighting disease.
