Former President George W. Bush has broken his relative silence since leaving office, granting his first sit down interview to NBC News and Matt Lauer. The interview coincides with the release of President Bush's memoir, "Decision Points," and aired tonight.
Lauer, always a good interviewer, did not hold back on the questions and President Bush appeared to be quite candid with his answers. They talked about his relationship with his parents, his drinking days, the 9/11 attacks, and the response to Hurricane Katrina, among many other things. I was impressed and look forward to reading the book.
President Bush begins his book tour with a live appearance on "Today" where he will continue his conversation with Lauer and answer questions submitted by viewers. He will also appear on tomorrow's edition of "Oprah." Check local listings for stations and times.
