James Mann Discusses New George W. Bush Book

When George W. Bush left office, word was that the GOP would separate itself from the Bush family and that there was no way another Bush would ever run for president again, at least not for a very long time.

Yet here we are, just six years later, and already there is the talk of another Bush running for the White House. What are the elements of the George W. Bush presidency that are now being viewed under a different light, and what elements may continue to deter Jeb Bush is his expected run for the presidency?

These questions can perhaps be best answered by longtime LA Times journalist and Fellow at John Hopkins, James Mann, who is the chief writer of the latest in the Times Books Presidents series: George W. Bush: The 43rd President, 2001-2009.
