Think Eisenhower. Bush, too, I hope will someday be remembered for lifting Americans' spirits after 9/11 and having a steady hand on the tiller of state when most we needed a steady hand. He unflinchingly took the bad press (unlike Obama's petulant response to Fox, et al.) and stayed true to the course he plotted. And when he was done -- he retired to a quiet, unassuming life at home and was not much in the public eye to distract from the business of the country (unlike Clinton, et al.).
