A Moment of Rarity

Often times, it takes years before Presidential aides and councilors speak frankly about their tenure in the West Wing and the political landscape as it stands, but Dan Bartlett, President Bush's councilor for more than six years, decided to abandon that route and be his own man. Last week, Leading Authorities arranged for Bartlett to speak before the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, his first public appearance since leaving the White House in July. Note Bartlett's willingness to imitate his former boss and Vice President Cheney. Also, his accurate description of the GOP Presidential race is comparable to anything we could get from any publication, and it's even sprinkled with ample comedy. It's a rare look from an insider who knows how to be successful in the game.
