Exchange Exemplar: Bush "41" From Biographer Jon Meacham

As the nation mourns the death of a president, we observe the highlights of his life.  George H.W. Bush was a very busy man with a great number of talents, we've been reminded lately. 

Jon Meacham, a historian, a writer and a friend to the late president, told Bush's story in the book Destiny and Power: The American Odyssey of George Herbert Walker Bush

Meacham's closeness to Bush produced some surprising revelations from "41" about the presidency of his son, among other subjects.  The interview was exactly three years ago, and we replay it here.
