I did an interview with Newsweek about President Bush's legacy (update: read the story here). Specifically, the reporter wanted to know how a president goes about shaping (and in some cases rehabilitating) his legacy.
The piece should come out next week, but it got me to thinking: How have the modern presidents gone about their post presidency?
I'm going to develop a longer op-ed on this topic, but my central thesis will be: There are really four "models" to post-presidential careers: Global Humanitarian (Hoover, Carter); Elder Statesman (Nixon); Activist (Teddy Roosevelt, Clinton), and Post Partisan (Ford, Bush).
I have a feeling I know which camp George W. Bush will fall into, but I'll save that for the op-ed.
