William F. Buckley Jr. on George W. Bush's Reelection on National Review Online
"Bulletin #2 came under extraordinary auspices. A phone call from someone I love just after the woman who bore him. A master of the universe in the political-journalistic world, he had a working guest in house whence he would report on the elections.
