Question: How do the two Bush administrations differ?

Armitage:    I think they were night and day.  This administration by and large is very ideological.  And I found George Herbert Walker Bush to be a very pragmatic fellow, a guy who was enormously steeped in foreign affairs, unlike his son.  The President 43 has said that he was not an expert in foreign policy and foreign affairs when he came to the job, and I think that’s the biggest difference.
