Sticking to his principles despite frequent public opposition. That's pretty much the definition of leadership.
Also pretty much the definition of delusion though, when you really get down to it. In Bush's case, maintaining an opinion and acting on it in the face of contradictory evidence points to either delusion or corruption. Or both.
Anyway, not meaning to pick on you Jeff - we just happen disagree on this one . Said my piece.
Thank you for convincing me that I would probably make a terrible president, as I see a lot of similar qualities between me and yourself. Thanks for showing so nicely that not even money and a good family can make you a true success in life, it makes me feel like less of a failure in what I've done. I'm quite grateful for the laughs that your administration provided me with over the years, your verbal stumbles, Condy thinking that she's your wife and Dick Cheney being so creepily sinister that he was a great joy to make jokes about
ps- thank you so much for a democratic president, it warms the cockles of my heart and makes me squirm with delight and anticipation

In a way Bush did unite the country like he said, united in their opposition to himself.
Someone mentioned the Bush Administration's impact in Africa. Can anyone expound on that a bit?
