As many, including Bush himself, have observed, Bush is not going to run for any more offices.
he has already told a biographer he is looking forward to retirement when he can fill up the “ole coffers” and buy himself a big house in Dallas.
So, Bush’s idea of being an Elder Statesman apparently doesn’t mean joining Jimmy Carter in airport lines traveling to peddle diplomacy around the world or picking up a hammer to work with Habitat for Humanity or forming a threesome with his dad and Bill Clinton to work on tsunami relief or fight poverty and disease.
It isn’t a bunch of poor kids who are gonna pay Bush 100,000 a shot to speak to their assembled executives. Are we clear?
