When it comes to reporting on politics, nobody does it smarter or funnier than bestselling author Molly Ivins. Here she focuses her Texas-size smarts on the biggest politician in her home state: Governor George Walker Bush. A candidate of vague speeches and an ambiguous platform, Bush leads the pack of GOP 2000 presidential hopefuls; "Dubya" could very well be our next president. What voters need now is an original, smart, and accessible analysis of Bush -- one that leaves the "youthful indiscretions" to the tabloids and gets to the heart of his policies and motivations. Ivins is just the woman for the job.
