14. Proving that different biographers can describe totally different people.

Here is my "mini-Bush Sr bio." His dad, Prescott was outed as a traitor and that was why he rushed off to war to prove that he was a real American. He spent his life trying to atone for the crimes of his father--committing crimes of his own along the way. Because people who are attached, suffer. His need to "atone" for his dad gave him a lot in common with southerners who needed to atone for their racist/lynching/bigoted ancestors, which was why he was more socially progressive than many Republicans of his era. He made the perfect CIA chief because he was willing to go to any lengths to protect his country--including criminal ones. He spoiled his kids, because daddy did not love him enough. He was a womanizer for the same reason--because he felt unloved as a child.
