Bush Legacy? Uh, Let's Wait on That

+ More

Now here's a real shocker. The Bushies aren't eager to start talking legacy about their prez yet. "Really," says one, "he's not obsessed with his legacy." Aides describe President Bush as the polar opposite of former President Bill Clinton, who was reportedly focused on his legacy the minute he was re-elected in 1996. We know how that went. Bush's doesn't look pretty either, but insiders say he's taking the long view and for proof note how his recent reading list included three George Washington bios. "His legacy won't be written for 50 years," shrugs an ally, "and, anyway, there's nothing we can do about it now."
