where the writers are

"In 20 years, George W. Bush may be considered one of our greatest Presidents," author Bob Woodward told a book-signing audience in Thousand Oaks, California in May of 2004. The remarks were mentioned on several national talk shows. Woodward spells out in "Bush at War" why this is his opinion. Woodward is thought of as a liberal because of his Watergate background, but in reality he is a former Naval officer and Republican. For this reason, he is considered balanced and is respected. He had great access to Bush and like the embedded reporters who saw up close what great work the military actually did, Woodward reports that Bush was on top of his game. His remarks in Thousand Oaks reflect the view of many that, like Ronald Reagan's victory over Communism which was criticized at the time, Bush will achieve his lofty goals that take time to flower.
