Bush's Demons

The early assessments of George W. Bush's Presidency have been almost universally negative, with journalists, historians, and even former members of Bush's own inner circle asking what went wrong. Slate editor Jacob Weisberg analyzes the second Bush presidency dynastically and psychologically, wondering if alleged failures stem in part from the President's tormented relationship with his father and other members of the Bush family.
