As the final hours of the Bush presidency pass today, I am again drawn to an incredible article in the current issue of Vanity Fair—"An Oral History of the Bush White House".
The magazine did the same type of article during the summer about the history of the Internet in which they talked to several key players who launched the World Wide Web. Basically, this style of writing is like a Q&A but the questions are omitted and several people tell the story—a perfect fit for an article with some of the people closest to the current president.
When I say the article is incredible, I don't mean that it is necessarily about an extraordinary man or that it was written particularly well, but that it gives a view from the inside in a way that hasn't been published before.
So, as the final hours of the Bush presidency pass today, I hope you will take the time to read it too.
