Tuesday brought a round of firsts for first lady Laura Bush – including her launch as a first-time author, her providing the first public tour of the family's Texas ranch, and her initial stint as a network morning-show host.
"And welcome back to another hour of Today," Mrs. Bush said live from Studio A in New York's Rockefeller Center. "A beautiful crowd here in our plaza in midtown Manhattan. I'm Laura Bush, and I'll be your guest host today, Tuesday, April 22, 2008."
"That's something you don't hear every day," quipped the show's co-anchor Matt Lauer – as the guest host's daughters, Jenna and Barbara Bush, observed their mother from the show's in-studio news desk.
"Very good job," critiqued Jenna.

IDENTIFIED: First Twin Barbara Bush has been seen keeping company in New York, Washington and Texas with a tall, dark-haired young man named Jay Blount, The Washington Post reports. The official word from the White House is that Blount has been "identified only as a friend of the family," though The Post says Blount, like Barbara and her presidential father and grandfather before her, is a Yalie – class of '05 and a founding member of the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity. Two years ago, according to the Yale Daily News, he was named one of the New Haven campus's "50 Most Beautiful People."
