Fitzhugh Green discussed his recent biography George Bush: An Intimate Portrait. Mr. Green talked of the president’s upbringing: his parents, his prep school days, and his college experience at Yale. He described Bush’s naval career, where he was the youngest pilot in the U.S. Navy, and his business career in Texas. He examined Bush’s experience as a freshman congressman, his service as U.N. ambassador and ambassador to China, as well as his tenure as head of the CIA. Also, Mr. Green discussed the life of First Lady Barbara Bush, whom Green knew as a youth, and the hard working characteristics that both the president and Mrs. Bush share. Complimenting the First Lady’s organizational skills, Green said, “If I inherited General Motors, she would be the person I would want to run it.” close
