Who Will History Be kindest To Bush or Cheney?



Cafferty poses the question and the answers he gets are almost uniform, each hitting the same point that Bush is dumb and Cheney almost sociopathic.

However, what I find most interesting is to see Bush, in the final days of his administration, tell us that, "I didn't compromise my soul to be a popular guy", whilst engaging in a pointless last minute round of interviews in which he seeks to rewrite his legacy and turn the fact that he didn't listen to anyone into a virtue.

If he doesn't care what people think why is he trying so hard to remind us that he "liberated" 50 million people? He either cares or he doesn't, and he's beginning to sound desperate that we redefine how we see him.

Why would history be kind to either one?
