Unwinding From Bush's Mistakes
In the October issue of The Atlantic, Jonathan Rauch explores how long it will take to "unwind" all of the many mistakes, foreign and domestic, that George W. Bush has made in his disastrous presidency. His conclusion:
'...a reasonable guess is that unwinding Bush will take more than a decade but less than two, meaning the job will be harder than unwinding [President] Carter but easier than unwinding Nixon...Bush has two years left to unwind himself; and if he's lucky, he'll have a Democratic House or Senate to help. He has been cursed with a Republican Congress that has indulged his worst tendencies--but that problem, at least, the voters might soon unwind.'
