Talking Points Memo reports:

In a recent interview with Newsmax, Bush was asked whether he thought Palin was a viable candidate for president.

He said that Palin’s success depends on her willingness to add a “depth of understanding of the complexity of life we’re living in today” to her rhetoric.

“That’s up to her,” he said. “I mean, I don’t know what her deal is, but my belief is in 2010 and 2012, public leaders need to have intellectual curiosity.”
