Every president gets concerned about his legacy as his final term comes to a close.
In the beginning, Pres. Bush was full of piss and vinegar. You're either with us or against us. John Wayne riding tall against America's enemies.
But now, the president is expressing regret. Regret that his legacy will be that of a president who relished war.
In an interview with the Times of London, Bush says he's hopeful he can pave the way for a diplomatic solution to the vexing concerns over Iran's possible plans to develop nuclear weapons.
This from a president whose foreign policy has earned his nation distrust from the rest of the world.
It seems the president is candidly reflective as his term enters its golden months. It's a refreshing albeit late change in attitude that hopefully serves as a model for the next person who occupies the Oval Office.
