Kathleen Hall Jamieson on George Bush’s Legacy

    Texas Monthly, in its March issue, polled what it calls “15 of the smartest people in the
    room-presidential scholars, best-selling biographers and White House veterans of both
    parties,” asking them about the legacy of George W. Bush and if “there is anything he can
    still do to change it.”

    Joining historian Douglas Brinkley, biographer Robert Caro, former Bush administration
    Commerce Secretary Donald L. Evans, and former Bill Clinton advisor Paul Begala in the
    survey is Kathleen Hall Jamieson, director of the Annenberg Public Policy Center.

    Jamieson believes Bush’s legacy will be his use of signing statements, the written
    documents presidents can issue when signing a bill into law.
