Reviewing the Bush Memoir

Gentle readers who are looking for helpful reviews of Decision Points, the Dubya memoir released today, will do well to access two.

On the substance of the book, we recommend the formidable Daniel Henninger of the WSJ editorial board.

On the man that the book reveals, Bush staffer Mark McKinnon offers a touching, humane portrait.

Much as his political opponents hate to admit it, the consistent testimony about Bush, his book and his career are that he is a singularly humble, loyal individual, much more willing to owe up to his mistakes than people realize.

All this makes the editors of the New Hampshire Union Leader wish that another living ex-president would learn something from Mr. Bush about the dignity of being an ex-president. And his name is not Bush or Clinton. Got that figured out?
