Big Thinker Stanley Fish gives us the road-map to a George W. Bush recovery: return to splendor by being himself after leaving office.

“…the fact is that he’s likable. I don’t mean on the superficial level of being someone you’d want to have a beer with. It’s deeper than that. He comes across as a basically decent man who is at peace with himself.”

Fish runs down the very best of past comebacks [that Nixon: what a smarty!] and helps Bush by setting the bar kinda low:

“Despite the fun poked at his verbal maladroitness, he is actually quite skillful (certainly more skillful than either Al Gore or John Kerry) in conveying his positions succinctly and persuasively.”
