Bush telephone calls


Check out this article. One of Bush's advisors during the 2000 primaries taped some of his conversations with the then Governor of Texas. Some of the substance is not terribly new, but what makes it interesting is that these conversations were with an adviser, so the spin factor is turned down a few clicks.

Some highlights:

1. W's thought that McCain would not be much of a player.

2. W's fondness for Ashcroft.

3. W's refusal to bash gays, coupled with his view that gay marriage would be special treatment.
