    I don't know about the legality, but at least the ad-makers are trying to show her in a good light in the ad, rather than going 2012 Republican Primary Season on her.

    (Although it is plausible NOM or a similar group could respond by doing that, particularly if Mrs. Bush hadn't objected to the footage use in this ad.)

    Prayers and best wishes to those in Japan.
