The Bush Inheritance

Posted Monday, January 19, 2009

In his farewell address, President Bush staked a claim to what many have called his greatest success. Of the fight against terrorism, he said, "There can be little debate about the results: America has gone more than seven years without another terrorist attack on our soil." The complete inheritance he offers President-Elect Barack Obama is considerably more complicated, coming as it does with two wars and a collapsing economy. Join us Monday morning at 9 for a conversation about where the next presidency begins and where Ohio fits in.
