George H.W. Bush: Four perfect eulogies for an incredible life

How do you take a man — a 94-year-old man, a man who spent his life in service of his country, enlisting in the military at 18 years old to serve in World War II, where his plane was shot down and he barely escaped capture, a man who went on to become a congressman, an ambassador to China, a CIA director, a vice president and the 41st president of United States — and sum up his life in a 90-minute memorial?

Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden, 75, said, "I think it's totally appropriate for people to look at me and say, if I were to run for office again, 'Well God darn, you're old.' Well chronologically, I am old."

Bob Woodward's book: Another work of non-fiction fiction?

In his book "Veil: The Secret Wars of the CIA 1981-1987," Washington Post journalist Bob Woodward wrote about a deathbed conversation he had with CIA Director William J. Casey. President Reagan, a Republican, was at the time in the throes of the Iran-Contra affair, and Mr. Woodward just happened to get Casey to admit that he had known about the diversion of Iran arms sale money to the Contras.
