Who Is The Bush Administration?

Posted:
in General Discussion edited January 2014
As I noted in another thread, all day today I've been thinking about the vagueness of the term "the Bush Administration." Who are these people? Who are the cabinet officers? Who are the advisors? Can we compile a brief bio of each?



I thought this might make an interesting cooperative research project.



Cheers

Scott

    Hurray. Give him a cookie...he found Waldo. This is the main man. Don't let anyone fool you. "Arbusto" is merely there for the cool money, army men, tanks, jets, pretzels and photo-ops.

    There was a nice article in the last (or at least a recent) Atlantic about Rumsfeld and Cheney and their planning for nuclear war during the Reagan admin.



    Sort of gets at what you are after.
