John McCain: What is the legacy of George W. Bush?
John McCain: I think that’s gonna depend to a large degree on the outcome of the war in Iraq, because many historians judge presidents by the conduct of national security policy. I think he’ll be judged harshly on the issue of spending – failure to get spending under control. I think he will be not judged favorably by not engaging more in the issue of climate change and trying to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. But I also think that he will be remembered as a good and decent man who loved his country, and that tried very hard to fix some of the problems, including Social Security, that are important to the future of the nation.
