Lanny Davis, who served as Clinton’s special counsel for two years, has some good words on W. They went to Yale together, and he tells a few stories.
Lanny Davis was the speaker at my high-school graduation. It was 1978, and he was set to run for Congress; one of our teachers fancied himself a Democratic mover and shaker in Montgomery County, and lined up the speech to help Davis win exposure. (He lost anyway that fall--it was the first election I ever voted in, and Im happy to say I voted against Lanny and for his GOP opponent, the late Newt Steers). I have no memory of anything Davis said, except his remark that his father admired FDR a lot. But Lanny seemed like a reasonably inoffensive guy. His turn flacking for Clinton/Gore was a low passage in his career, however.
