"This is going to come as quite a shock to people up here that I can write a book, much less read one ... I have no desire to see myself on television. I don't want to be a panel of formers instructing the currents on what to do ... I'm trying to regain a sense of anonymity."

--George W. Bush, speaking about his upcoming memoir and other subjects at a breakfast reunion of Bush ex-staffers. (As reported by Mike Allen of Politico.)
