Honesty. Integrity. Clarity of purpose. These are the qualities that carried George W. Bush to a decisive victory in 2004, and these are the qualities journalist Ronald Kessler discovered while investigating a president who is so scrutinized-and so criticized-at home and around the world. Kesslers unparalleled behind-the-scenes account of the Bush White House is a New York Times bestseller and now includes an epilogue about the role of character in the 2004 campaign. After digging deeply into the inner sanctum of the White House and Bushs personal life, Kessler discovered that most of what people think they know about Bush simply isnt true. For instance, that hes not very smart. That hes narrow-minded about his Christian faith and his conservative beliefs. That he lets other people make the big decisions for him. All myths-driven mainly by biased reporting in the media. Kessler was granted extraordinary access to the administration and its key players, including Colin Powell, Donald Rumsfeld, Andrew Card, Karl Rove, Condoleezza Rice, and many others. He discovered how Bush acts when the television cameras leave: honest to a fault, open to new ideas, grounded with common people, and powerful without pretense. He reveals how Americas first M.B.A. president negotiates challenges such as terrorism, the economy, and education reform. In the end, the 2004 election came down to a matter of character. Ronald Kessler shows why the majority of Americans made the right choice.
