President George W. Bush told ABC’s Charlie Gibson that he wanted to keep a low profile for a while after leaving office. “I would like to live life without the limelight for a while. I think it’s going to be real important for me to get off the stage. We got a new man coming on the stage. I wish him all the very best and I don’t want to be out there critiquing him.”
Bush also told Gibson that his biggest regret was the intelligence failure about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. “I think I was unprepared for war,” said Bush.
