FOX 34 political analyst Cindy Rugeley and Jeff Klotzman discussed the good and not-so-good that will define the presidency of George W. Bush on the day his library was dedicated in Dallas.
Rugeley, a political science instructor at Texas Tech, said the former president's legacy will be in part determined by the long-term success of post-Saddam Iraq.
She said Bush was not a partisan figure as governor of Texas, but finished his second term accused of being quite partisan, at least by Democrats. Some Republicans, she said, did not think Bush had been partisan enough. Rugeley said Bush's approval ratings have gone up - to 49% in the latest FOX poll - in part due to his leadership after 9/11, and in part because people are beginning to figure out the former president is simply "a nice guy".
