The Complicated Relationship between Bush and Cheney

Hosted by

tp131030baker-book.jpgThe relationship between George W. Bush and Dick Cheney was central to a tumultuous time in US history, including two wars, Hurricane Katrina and the Great Recession. Days of Fire: Bush and Cheney in the White House, traces the evolution of that relationship. David Frum, who wrote speeches for Bush, calls the book the best draft of history we'll have "until the archives are opened." Peter Baker, chief White House correspondent for the New York Times, is author of the 800-page work based on hundreds of interviews, including two long and detailed sessions with the former Vice President.
