64. No. It invades her privacy and it's lousy politics
Going after Laura is bad, bad, bad.

We might get the satisfaction of outing a pair of hypocrites but while some my be outraged by the hypocricy, many more would be outraged by the revelation.

Laura Bush's medical records are a private matter. This is a principle that we should not compromise. The only time a person's medical records should become public matters is if they effect his or her abilty to do a job that could effect public safety. Do I want to know if my airline pilot has a drinking problem--yes. Do I want to know if my president has a drinking problem--yes.
