Although President Bush, an eager and capable campaigner, was pushed into the shadows by fellow Republican candidates this year, his loyalists still have his back.
Insiders believe that the optimistic and steadfast President has been misunderstood. Perhaps more frustrating to supporters: the recent financial crisis has left the administration little chance to go out on a positive note or give attention to his legacy.
Even so, former Bush press secretary Ari Fleischer says Bush is confident that history will be kinder on him than his contemporaries. Do you think time will make the Bush Presidency look better or worse than it does now?
