From C-SPAN's 1/30/11 "Q&A" interview, George W. Bush says he's through with politics. "I don't want to go out and campaign for candidates. I don't want to be viewed as a perpetual money raiser. I don't want to be on these talk shows giving my opinion, second guessing the current president. I think it's bad for the country, frankly, to have a former president criticize his successor. It's tough enough to president as it is without a former president undermining the current president. Plus, I don't want to do that. In other words, in spite of the fact that I'm now on TV, I don't want to be on TV...I tell people that one of the interesting sacrifices, I don't think you sacrifice to run for president, but to the extent you do is you lose your anonymity. I like the idea of trying to regain anonymity to a certain extent. And being out of the press, at least in this stage of the post presidency is something that makes me very comfortable and its somewhat liberating, frankly." See the complete interview, Sunday, January 30 at 8:00 p.m. & 11:00 p.m. ET on C-SPAN.
