More like Jimmy Carter...
Somehow I can't see him undermining the presidency of the U.S. unlike said Carter. I DO believe that Carter will continue to be an embarrassment even to Obama, it's just his nature.
GWB will gratefully retire to Texas where we will honor him.
I can't recall another president who's respect and reverence for the office never once permitted him to lash out at his detractors, however justified. He's a gentleman's whose like we'll not see anytime soon. Reminds me of Robert E. Lee.
I have noticed that a lot of press is saying nice things about him, things they always knew were true; whether out of embarrassment or fear that once he's free from the office he can respond I don't know.
