More on the Bush-Costas interview

Thanks to reader Julie for alerting me to the fact that the link I provided yesterday to an interview between President Bush and NBC sports broadcaster Bob Costas is down. Here's an alternative link to the video, and I would second this sentiment about Bush's manner in the interview:’s the first time in a while I’ve seen Bush at home in his own skin, and the first time in years I didn’t come away from watching an interview with him some combination of embarrassed or irritated.

I recall having that embarrassed/irritated feeling when watching Bush in his first year in office, and thinking that he would get better over time. But he just never did, which is why this interview is such a rarity.
