Yes, there are reasonable Democrats in the world who can get past their bitter hate for George W. Bush and appreciate him for the man he is:
Former President Bill Clinton is heartily praising "Decision Points," the new memoir by his successor, former President George W. Bush, as "well-written and interesting from start to finish."
"I think people of all political stripes should read it," Clinton said in a statement Friday. "George W. Bush also gives readers a good sense of what it’s like to be president, to take the responsibilities of the office seriously, do what you think is right, and let history be the judge.
"The book may not change the minds of those who disagree with decisions President Bush made, but it will help you to understand better the forces that molded him and the convictions that drove him to make those decisions."I hope 'Decision Points' will help my fellow Democrats to see why I like George Bush, in spite of our differences, and will encourage all Americans, whatever our politics, to be more open to listening to and working with those with whom we disagree. America needs that now."
