George W. Bush is sitting down with Matt Lauer to give his first one-on-one TV interview since leaving the White House. The interview will air Monday, Nov. 8 at 8 p.m., and then Bush will appear live on Today Wednesday, Nov. 10. Not coincidentally, Bush’s memoir Decision Points comes out that week.
Lauer talked about the interview on The Tonight Show last night, saying that he and his people had been pursuing the interview for over a year. “When you stop and think about what President Bush experienced in office, from 9/11, to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and Hurricane Katrina, and so many other things, the financial situation — it should be really interesting,” Lauer said.
Off topic, but: Lookin’ good, Matt Lauer!
Anyway, George W. Bush sticks to talking points, no matter what, so I have pretty low expectations for these interviews. What about you, PopWatchers? Looking forward to reliving the Bush years?
