Decoder Voices Bush on Bush, and the best presidential memoir never written

George W. Bush's forthcoming memoir on his father should be worth a read, but the best memoir by a former president skipped his presidential years.

The news that George W. Bush has written a book about his 90-year old father, former president George. H. W. Bush, set off the usual partisan-based reaction among some in the punditocracy. But I, for one, look forward to reading it, not least because one could argue – as I did here – that the elder Bush is the best president never to win reelection. Moreover, it will be interesting to see whether Bush 43 addresses some of the policy differences between them, most notably how each approached the problem of removing Saddam Hussein from office.
