[Bush] admits he'll miss things, one of them "being commander in chief." One thing rarely mentioned about this president (and he does not bring it up to me) is that he has met with some 2,800 families who have lost loved ones in Afghanistan or Iraq. When I mention it, and how quietly he has performed these meetings, he simply responds that it was important they not be "political." He does say he'll miss doing it, because "it's always been a healing experience. The commander in chief -- the comforter in chief gets comforted. Why? Because the character of the American people is so strong . . ."
