Smarter Than He Seems?

Tapes of then-Governor George W. Bush seem to indicate that he was developing a crafty political strategy well before the GOP primaries heated up, recognizing the need to cater to evangels without offending the more secular voters. If interpretations of the tapes, which have not been made public, are correct, Bush would seem to be more involved in his shrewd campaign strategies than he is generally given credit for.

Of lesser importance to me, Bush seems to confirm past use of pot and cocaine. I think most voters understood the latter and decided to look past it. Bush can credit Clinton for desensitizing voters to the issue of past drug use.

Read more about the tapes here, here, and here.
