What a cover on Time Magazine! My favorite president with his predecessor who was the reason I dived into George W.’s campaign, together, back-to-back, looking into the camera (see Bill Clinton and George W. Bush’s plan for 2016 by Nancy Gibbs and Michael Duffy). You’ve got to love it.
The two former presidents, leaders of the Baby Boomer generation, sat down for a rare joint interview with Time Magazine in a quirky election cycle that sees George W.’s younger brother running against Bill’s wife.
“I can’t tell you who is going to win, but I can tell you what’s going to happen,” Bush says. “There’s kind of a general pattern. And there will be flash in the pans, there will be this crisis, there will be the funding thing. There will be all these things that happen, but eventually the person who can best lead their party will be nominated.”
I’ve got to stop at the news stand to pick up this copy of Time. It’s a keeper and will go in my office on the political shelves.
George W. and Bill … the unlikely friendship. One has to wonder if it will become battered during the 2016 election cycle….
