I Believe Bush this Time

Here's a little snippet about a random encounter between Bill Clinton and W:
The last time President Bush was in New York City to address the U.N., he ran into Bill Clinton in a corridor. As the book Dead Certain recalls, Bush’s aides speculated “uncharitably” about “another case of Clinton craving one more tanning session in the executive limelight.”

Bush was gracious and chatted for the cameras. But afterward he told an aide: “Six years from now, you’re not going to see me hanging around the lobby of the U.N.”
That's true on so many levels. It's certainly true that he doesn't have the intellectual or moral fiber to remain involved in world affairs. It's certainly true that nobody wants him around after his term is up. Finally, it's true that, even if they do try him for the war crimes of launching an unjustified war and condoning torture, that would be a harsh sentence and an unlikely place to carry it out.
