Sounds Right To Us On Both Counts
The Washington Post's Michael Wilbon says that as we head into the home stretch of the NBA season, it's really down to four elite teams vying for the title: the Lakers, Celtics, Cavs and Spurs. Meanwhile, his colleague Al Kamen notes a recent C-Span poll of historians that rates the outgoing president George W. Bush as the seventh-worst in history. We think that's a good start, and a temporary resting place from which he should only slowly fall even lower as the enormity of his serial disasters continue to be digested and assessed.
UPDATE: Bush, who famously told author Robert Draper that in his post-presidency he would give some speeches "just to replenish the ol' coffers," is about to embark on a series of speeches. Meanwhile, a columnist for Britain's Guardian newspaper has some fun imagining various jobs Bush might explore.
