....or maybe not.
Bush didn't IMHO do much to dispel the notion that he is an affable dim bulb. He doesn't seem to have much fire in his belly; he reminded me of the time Bob Dole was asked in 96 what he was going to do if he became president. Dole replied "I'm just gonna serve my country." Nothing about his vision for the country etc.
Letterman was kind of tame, too. Decidedly earnest and he didn't crack too many jokes. Best part of the interview was when he pressed Bush on the death penalty issue.
