One last cloud over the White House
Well, we knew it couldn't last. Millions turned out Tuesday to witness George W. Bush's final departure from the White House and the inauguration of former Sen. Barack Obama. But the day would have been infinitely more enjoyable were it not for a little tidbit Bush let slip upon his return home to Texas. He plans to write a book. Not read a book to children, which is what he was famously doing when terrorists attacked New York and Washington, but write one. He wants to offer insights into his thinking through the crises of his eight years in office, as if. "I want people to be able to understand what it was like in the Oval Office when I had to make some of the tough decisions that I was called upon to make," Bush said. Bush also plans to open a presidential library and the Freedom Institute in Dallas, a public policy center expected to defend the policies of his presidency. Everyone is looking forward to that.
