Bush's Last Year As President
As Bush travels to the Middle East and visits with Sheiks and other wealthy heads of the UAE, the remainder of the world including most Americans are awaiting his exit from the world stage. The recent trips are obviously attempts to polish his legacy yet any substantive results are unlikely. I have to wonder how the world would see someone like Barack Obama as President. I suspect he would send a very hopeful signal to the world that the United States was returning to its role as a bastion of real democracy and not just a bully with lots of weaponry.
