Members of the George W. Bush administration met in Dallas this April for a reunion party.
[F]ew were as dark about the Republican Party’s future as former President Bush himself. In a more intimate moment during the reunion, surrounded by a smaller clutch of former aides and advisers, Bush weighed in with an assessment so foreboding that some who relayed it could not discern if it was gallows humor or blunt realpolitik. “I’m worried,” Bush told them, “that I will be the last Republican president.”
Well, George, I'm not worried about that . . . in fact, I'M HOPING YOU ARE THE LAST REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT.
