Q. Do you think George Bush is a wimp?
A. I don't think he's at all a wimp. His great asset is that he's perceived as a wimp -- it's always a strength for a public figure if the public misperceives him. People come in to deal with the man, or indeed a woman, with a misperception. Then their reflexes aren't ready for what's really there.
Q. So you see George Bush as . . .
A. A very canny, tough, self-centered political figure who would have huge difficulty in passing a course in philosophy.
He's a little bit like Maggie...
