"For you. And so as a guy who had covered smaller town news in Midland, Odessa and Waco, Texas, where I got sent to the rattlesnake Roundup. The rodeo and the Ostrich Festival covering the governor's race in Austin, Texas, was pretty exciting. So I was probably the first TV reporter on the bus with George W. Bush. Baseball owner of the Texas Rangers. In the 1994 campaign. I was the spokesman, the Bush campaign. We have several spokespeople and I was I supposed the principal spokesperson former spokesperson for George W. Bush, Ari Fleischer. I was brought in by Karen Hughes, who was the communications director. That previously worked on Capitol Hill. I was press secretary for a three Congress spending one senator, but I left Capitol Hill in March of 1999 to become communications director for Elizabeth Dole when she ran for president. And when things didn't work out for her, she dropped out of the race, and Governor Bush asked me to move to Texas and become his folks without the campaign and whether or not you're a Republican or a Democrat or an independent. We're asking for your support. We're asking you to join our cause and join us in victory on November the seventh they were, I think relentlessly on message. I remember many, many times. And so I knew Karen views for a good six years before the presidential campaign and weepy and Somewhere in Iowa in early 2000, and I'd say Hey, you know, Karen, how you doing? And she said, you know, it's a great day to talk, education reform Mike and like, like, nonstop on message, And so I think, um, he was a very disciplined candidate at that.

"As a governor of a big state go For him being an executive, which back then was considered to be the gold standard, Right? You had three executive experience you had the sort of buck stops with me experience that you don't get if you're just a member of Congress, But there's a worry whenever you have not spent time in Washington or in a job outside of a state that you don't have the requisite foreign policy experience and the Chops to be able to handle. You know, if we get into the middle of a war or a foreign policy crisis in the spring of 2000, we began a process that the governor of Texas began a process to figure out who his running mate might be. And he appointed as the head of it. The president and CEO of Halliburton, Richard B. Cheney of Dallas, and we were looking at nine people and Cheney was so it was assisted by his by young lawyer named Liz. Cheney As time went on, the governor of Texas became more enamored with the mind and abilities and judgment of Dick Cheney. And so as we went forward, there are others that he was in there were still in consideration, but he was looking more and more at Cheney and he talked to me about it. But I was convinced her more weaknesses and strengths because I was looking at it is it's a political calculation. So finally, one day I had to talk about a stereotype. I had a Phone in my office. It was a red felt this is, you know, sort of like weird, and only one person had that phone number. Karen Hughes had similarly a red phone, and one person had that phone number, namely the governor of Texas, so he wanted to be able to get ahold of us. And if that red phone rang, it was either him or a pizza parlor offering to deliver pizzas. So anyway, the phone rings and it's him and he's out on the campaign trail. Anybody's coming back to Boston that night, he says. I've been thinking about what you've been saying about Cheney and I want you to, uh, come prepared Morrow, maybe at the governor's mansion, 10 o'clock, and I want you to be prepared to make the case against Dick Cheney. And so I said, Great, I'll be there. So I walk in a 10 o'clock actually a couple minutes before 10 o'clock because Bush is like a beyond time kind of guy. And there, too. You know, there's a comfortable chair and I sit down and in and he's in a comfortable chair. Maybe 45 ft. Away from me, and he says, Okay, tell me why I shouldn't go with Cheney and I said, Well, number one. Don't need to worry about Wyoming last lots of lost its electoral votes in 1964 and the Goldwater defeat, so don't need to worry about it. Why only number two, Cheney had his first heart attack at the age of 34. He's been working on perfecting it ever since. He's had several more heart attacks. People were gonna say that guy's not gonna last four years, you know, anyway, I had eight reasons, you know, And it's like World Wrestling Federation, though, because Bush is not a monologue kind of guy. So everything I'm saying, Here's a stupid book. Casting. But shall we? Let's just one and they're not governor. They're here, Seymour and literally. At the end of the I realized I can't but my jacket I realized I could not open my jacket because I've sweat through my shirt. So it's about 30 or 35 minutes of this World Wrestling Federation of political discourse, and Bush says, I finished and bushes got anything else. I said no, no, that's it, he said. Good, really good turns to the guy sitting next to me and says Dick, do you have any questions? They ask Carl? Genius.

"You do it that way, Ben Hur This week out of the blue, A listener who grew up in Istanbul last US for a copy of our interview with Susan Orlean, who wrote, among other things, the Orchid Thief. We found it for him. And upon further review, thought it be fun to share it with you. Susan Orlean's on the phone. Hi, Susan. Hey, How are you? What a great nod to you. Now it was such a thrill. You know, Ever when I started the orchid thief? I started this project thinking here I am writing this kind of eccentric book about this, You know unusual crime that takes place in South Florida following this Eccentric character around and the next thing I know you fast forward to sitting at the Golden Globes screaming, and that's why I'm horse when Meryl Streep won her award. No, it's it's just been so much fun. And actually, it didn't start out as a book so much as a magazine article, right I started. This is a story for the New Yorker. And at the time, really, I thought this is a Very unusual story about a guy who got arrested for stealing orchids out of a swamp. I just was curious about it. Why would you steal orchids? I just couldn't figure it out. And the thing was so interesting that it just grew and grew and I spent about 2.5 years working on it. The orchid thief came out of that. And then when I heard that it was being optioned for a movie that's going to be interesting. I can't imagine how they're going to make it into a movie. And that's kind of really was, Yeah, That's what continued being asked by the screenwriter to the whole process. Even as he wrote the movie, he thought I can't do it, and so then wrote a movie about the guy who couldn't write a movie about the book Exactly. So next thing you know you're hobnobbing with Nick. No. Yeah, You know my my posse, but, you know, but you know, the last time I talk to you briefly about this. We talked about this, but I hadn't seen the film yet will. Then the film comes out and You know, we talked about protecting sort of the integrity of your character because you're a real person and right. You were sort of whimsical about it said Oh, you know what? I wrote a book. They make a movie and that's the deal you do, But they portrayed you at the end of that movie is a philandering drug taking murderous just everything that you know. I hope you're not well, personally. I like the thought that people are now going to be Cared if they cross made a lot of fun. You know, here I am. A knife, retiring New Yorker writer writing my knife book. And next thing you know, people look at me and think I wonder if she's back in heat. And then not even a Karen Hughes. Yeah, well, I guess we'll have to kill him, right? Just like that would be so logical right Well, and there are plenty of writers who probably have thought about this person who adapted their book to the screen. They probably have thought, Boy. I'd love to kill him. Let me ask you this. What did you wear to the show? Because I didn't see one screen. Oh, well, it was. I spent a great deal of time thinking about it. If you can imagine I were really pretty dressed by a Japanese designer named Junior Watanabe. And I wore shoes that I bought. When my mom was here for Thanksgiving. We went shopping, and I wore my earrings that I got as my Christmas present for my husband. So I was I had, you know, like going to my own wedding. I had to have something. From my mom. Something for my husband? Yeah. And yet is a competitive. I mean, is hard as you try to look as good as you can. So to do all of these other world famous women. So do you begin, Tio shrink a little bit, or did you just not care? Well, I wanted to feel like I look good. And I also knew that I was walking down the red carpet with people who That's what they do for a living. I'm a writer and I just I'm just gonna look as good as I can look, and I'm not going to feel self conscious about walking in. I actually walked in right behind Allison Janney. I think that I pronounce your name right. She's about 12 feet tall. She is. She's over six foot and she, you know, she must have been a model before she became an actress, and she's just Sort of this. And and Nicole Kidman was a little bit after me, and I thought I'm OK with this. Nicole Kidman is 12 feet tall. She's actually 12 feet tall. Yeah, it was. I had no idea and film. She looks only about 10 feet tall. Well, when you see these people in person, then what struck you were they? You know it was a humanizing or was it even less so where they even more glamorous than you imagined? Well, there are a lot of people who are Meryl Streep, for instance, and Chris Cooper all People who worked on this movie that Susan Orlean talking about her book, The Orchid Thief and the adaptation of it. I've always enjoyed her work. We invited her back a couple of years ago to tell us about her book, The Library book, Another really well written story about an amazing Currents and some really strange people.

"As an adviser to George W Bush during his presidential campaign and as President Karen Hughes was a key voice in the compassionate conservatism approach She was born in France lived in Panama grew up in Dallas and has traveled the world representing the United States but it was her time in Panama that I left a mark with her running for office and she thought that it really meant more freedom for her country and and and a better life for herself and her family and I guess I realized firsthand and you know the the power of people in a democratic election Karen has had a remarkable career but she's most proud of the titles of wife Mother and grandmother she shares how she balances it and find unique ways to put family first including bring her son on the road to presidential campaign stops I made her Kaufman and this is a strategic presented by the George W Bush institute what happens when he crossed the forty third president late night sketch come Comedy and compelling conversation the strategic a podcast born from the word strategic which was coined by us now embraced by the George W Bush administration we highlight the American spirit of leadership and compassion through thought provoking conversations and we're reminded that the most effective leaders are the ones who laughed on the strategic today as our co host we.

Karen Hughes Discuss Clarity, Conviction, and Compassion

"On the strategic today as our co host we have Hannah Abney the vice president of External Affairs joining us again Hannah thank you for doing this Sandra and our guest is the Great Karen Hughes who the New York Times famously said the rule of thumb in any White House is that nobody is indispensable except the president but Karen Hughes comes close to that description as any recent presidential aide Karen what do you think of that well it's a it's interest I think that that was said the day or two after I announced that I was leaving the White House so I remember thinking how ironic it took me announcing I'm leaving for the New York Times to finally say something Nice about me but you know part of it was I agree that no one is indispensable and it just was so different from the way that we operated in President Bush's White House and has when he was governor of Texas because it was so much a team environment it was really not about any individual it was about a team of the people who were there to serve the president and that's how I felt when I left and I told reporters in the press room they were like well you know but but you're leaving and I said well they're great people here continue to do the work I'm Dan Bartlett Mary Madeline and took rescue and we had a great team in place and they said but you're the leader the team and I said no the president's the leader of the team and he staying so doing anyway he's not going anywhere well thank you for being here welcome back to the Bush Center and Joaquin awesome you always great to be here always great to see the great things happening at my Alma Mater yes it is it really is Karen you have had a remarkable career you've senator analyst you've been addressed today and the executive director of the Texas Republican Party you've been President Bush's Communications Guru as you talked about in the White House but also when he was the governor of Texas you're under Secretary of State for public diplomacy the Global Vice Chair of Burson Marsteller is your current Gig and of course most important he probably is your mom and an career mother and a wife and really fortunately for us at the Bush Center an incredibly trusted adviser membership of our sorry member of our Advisory Committee continuous advocate for women around the world so how have you had the time to do it all well you know it's interesting I when people ask me now about Alan I'm not sure there such a thing as balance what I what I say to to women and men today is that that you can have both a career and a family you'll have to make choices along the way but you don't have to choose one or the other and at different times in your life one may have to be more important than the other and so I made the decision that I had to leave the White House I realized that I was no longer relevant to my family and I was missing a very important time I thought in in my son's life but you know I also was able to have wonderful experiences and when he went to college I went back to the State Department and had a great experience there in a very challenging and interesting role representing our country with in public S- across the world so I feel looking back I was able to bring my son with me on the on the presidential campaign I will never forget asking President Bush about that how was he then he was thirteen and it was born out of his interest during Christmas break during one of the days off school he came with me to New Hampshire and he loved it and he was fast naty by it and so that that sort of started the seat of an idea and then he came to New Hampshire during the actual election and spend a couple of days there and one day in the spring I went to President Bush and said you know what would you think about me taking Robert Out of school this fall and having him travel with us and you know most I think most leaders one of their key people said came to them and said amidst this really intense presidential campaign how I bring my kid along I mean most of them would have said no way to President Bush credit he looked at me and said that's a great idea and my son told me he's now thirty two lawyer in Houston and he told me not too long ago that rarely a day goes by that he doesn't think of something he learned during that great experience traveling on the presidential campaign and you know he did everything from participate in debate preparation to to traveling on the road with bus tours and watched the President I'm so grateful that he was able to see President Bush's leadership firsthand I feel that's been a big part of developing ham and so we have been able to have both wonderful your experiences and wonderful family experiences and so I would encourage everyone. UK Undo it it'll be hard sometime and but and you'll have to make choices time there were times when I had to step back on one or the other but you don't have to choose one or the other yeah you had a great line in your book about how how you felt when your son it's just make some brownies with you and you tired to make brownies and I was like what does that say about my life something must change here so I think it's also fascinating that it doesn't have to be finite I think talk about work life balance I think particularly with women because I don't think we have this conversation as often with men but when we talk about work life balance which I agree with you I'm not sure that there is a balance we talk about it like you can either be a mom or you can have a career and I think you've done a really interesting Job of having both and also even when you left the White House he worked totally gone I mean you were still helping you're still informing even when you are in Texas while promise President Bush would I left that I would stay in that was the first thing he said to me when I when I told him that you know I I remember saying you know Mr President I think the world of you but I have to move my family home to Texas and and you can imagine again he's the hardest job in the world the highest pressure imaginable one of his key people is is telling him I'm leaving and he turned to me looked and he said well you stay involved and it was the nicest thing he could have said and I said of course I'll stay involved and I told him that I would not only stay involved but that would come back and travel with him during his two thousand four reelection campaign because that's a model we hit established when he first ran for governor I I went to work for him and two things the first day I worked for him I've been the executive director of the Republican Party and so I was in the headquarters and I was getting all these calls about George Bush his positions and I realized I didn't know him well enough to speak for him so I told the campaign manager I need to go on the road with with then towards Bush because he hadn't been elected anything yet and to get oh and better and so I went on the road with them and we had a wonderful time and and I realized how much I believed in him and got to know him and we we called it the campaign of joy because we it was crazy by pager was always going off it was always bad news but we were running for all the right reasons and against all the odds that we forged a great great friendships there and that that's how I sort of got to know him was over the course of that campaign but I and that's how I realized that I could learn to speak for him was by being with him but the second part of that is I also learned that you really drive what I call the offense of the campaign from the road when you're at the headquarters are sort of naturally on defense you're responding to whatever the incoming nations are you may not want to answer but on the on the road you're with the candidate you can take advantage of opportunities you can see a moment when the candidate could speak out and make news and so I promised him when I left that I would come back in two thousand four and travel with them on the reelection campaign did which was a wonderful experience to it's been awhile since you've been on the road with him and in your book ten minutes from normal you've talked about some of those experiences on the road are there any memories now looking back that really stand out I remember visiting eighth based programs across the country where people were just I mean this one woman who washed the feet of the homeless I think it was in Minneapolis and just seeing you know what Americans doing to love their neighbors in need and President Bush always talked about the armies of compassion that the government could hand out money but it couldn't put hope in your heart or a sense of purpose in your lives and and during the campaign I remember witnessing that firsthand and then later the State Department I saw around the world where Americans were giving of themselves to help other people we'll have a better life and it was very inspiring to that point I mean you helped President Bush obviously coined the phrase compassionate conservatism which is I think perfect articulation of the kind of leader he is and the kind of president he was actually grew out of an interview if you want to hear the view there was an international reporter Cath dick I think he was from Europe who was in President Bush's office and he was pressing him about his political philosophy and and President Bush said well I'm a conservative and the reporter I said well but when you talk about single moms making ends meet and when you talk about you know parents wanting to bring their children to a better life about children you know that reading being the right for children and you don't sound like a conservative and President Bush looked at him and said well then call me a conservative with a heart and so we turn that into compassionate conservative and I think it really it does describe his his philosophy his optimism and his his concern for people and he always felt that government should be limited but the government also had a role because it could do certain things that would help but others such as those armies of compassion had an important role as well well it's something we think is so important here at the center we try to spend a lot of time talking about it I think some people feel like maybe we've lost a little bit of that compassion as a country thought about politics is not about policy but that perhaps in an age of where we're able to sort of hide behind a computer a lot of times that maybe we've lost a little bit of that compassion what do you think about that why I say we we drive into our automatic door garages and we shut the door and we don't get to see our neighbors as much and we sent emails rather than talking face to face and so I do think that's I think that's something we need to think about I mean technology has improved our lives in so many ways I'll never forget the first time I was able to edit a presidential speech on my device from the dressing room happen so technology has been very liberating but I also think we need to make sure that we don't use it to replace our human connections that we don't spend hours on you know social media on our phones as opposed to talking with our next door neighbor or you know face to face spending time with our

"That's still maintains the employer-based cover employer based system. So people wouldn't lose their coverage. I would really urge people to think through the fact that a notion of universal coverage is one that is seems pretty American to the vast majority of the public, and there are a variety of ways to get there. There's not just one path. In fact, Senator Warren other senators have talked about multiple paths to get there. So I think the. I think this is a kind of a straw man argument that Howard Schultz is using to justify his run. Okay. So David from what's your response to that? Well, I I don't think in the end how it shows we'll draw votes from Donald Trump because I don't think he'll be on the ballot. I think this ideal will burn itself out pretty quickly because he will discover there isn't a constituency for him. But the service he will provide in the interim is this one of my favorite political anecdotes told by Karen Hughes who was a communications advisor to President Bush, and she was on holiday on some beach and saw one of those advertising planes, pulling slogan behind and the slogan said something like Jill come back. I am visible without you, Jack. And she thought bad message Jack too much about you not enough about her. I think that's one of the things that tends to happen. Among intense political partisans, they talk themselves and the Democratic Party is right now having a conversation with itself, but how far does it go indirection of doing all the things that's ever dreamed of doing it faces a pretty weaken competent? So that's natural temptation. What Schultz has just done is reminded them. Who's actually went to decide the election of twenty twenty. And they are people who Democrats are not only not talking to but talking about in very derivative ways that they echoing Democrats are gonna have to compete in America's affluent, educated suburbs. That's not they're going to have to turn out. Of course, they're cork road. And there have to deliver a high turnout among African Americans one of the reasons Hillary Clinton lost in twenty sixteen was because although African Americans voted massively inter favorite. They didn't come out in the numbers. They had come out for. Twelve and two thousand eight by the way, she they they didn't come up for her in the numbers of came up for John Kerry in two thousand and four so that mobilizing block voters is going to be important. But what happens in the conversation is the kind of real committed ideological left of the Democratic Party. Does the talking and forgets that suburban moderates are going to do the voting but David from on that point though..

"From this day, continue to go out and will for as far as we'll be able to see and Heidi you were in the White House that day on September. Eleventh, two thousand and one. What was it like from the inside. Well, how was actually swimming upstream to make it to the White House? I got a call after the Pentagon was hit two calls one from my editor saying, you need to get down there right away and another from my family's saying, don't you dare go down there. So of course, I was on the metro swimming upstream got there and we were getting briefings on the corner of Lafayette square. And I just remember thinking how crazy this was that there was another plane missing, and we knew that it was either headed for us or it was headed for the capital and sitting there with my colleagues. Positioning ourselves such that if there was projectile whatever it was that we would be far enough back from it. And of course, the regular press pool was with George Bush on the plane, and then they assembled a separate type pool to go with the rest of the White House staff. We were taken to a secure location, and I remember standing behind Karen Hughes. Somewhere in a bunker in Washington does watching on replay the towers falling over and over again and knowing that the lifestyle that we had the freedom, the innocence in a way was never going to be the same. The second more personal hit for me was that a day later, my mother called and my brother had just gotten through boot camp and she said, Heidi, do you have a map? And I said, yes, and she said your brother's in the Indian Ocean. Do you know what that means? And of course, we didn't hear from him for a while and later found out that he was in the first battle group to be deployed. He was unin fibia assault ship the US Peleliu his photographer. And to this day, I think suffers with the trauma of taking pictures of a lot of dead. Bodies, dead Taliban, US soldiers. And so just just the ramifications, the widespread effects this this has had on a lot of families. I think that demonstrates. And of course, Heidi was talking David Ignatius about. About the capital and the White House being one of those two being targets. We, of course remember also this morning, those on flight ninety three that saved those lost their own lives, but save those who were working in the capital or in the White House. And there is a fitting memorial to them in Pennsylvania. Thomas Ricks. I remember my God six seven eight years ago. It was listening to NPR news talking about how a child born on September. Eleventh. Our child who is at a bus stop going into second grade and September. Eleventh was now fighting in Afghanistan. We continue fighting and Afghantistan and now you can say that a baby, not even one, maybe one new year old at the time of nine, eleven. Chances are good. There are quite a few of those who are now eighteen year old men and women who were fighting this war still in Afghanistan. The events of nine eleven had such a long tail. You know, we're still dealing with the the wars, the anger in the world. I have a memory NADA of that day, but of a few years later, I in Iraq covering that war and going to the gym in the green zone where the American. Group was was was based in seeing on the wall. Picture of the twin towers and the similar mural in the dining room and the message was we're avenging what Iraq did to us on nine eleven well that that was false. That was that was an idea that people allowed to people deliberately spread, but Iraq was not responsible for nine eleven, and it's just one of the awful tragedies that we went into that war with so many Americans thinking they were taking revenge for what had been done on nine, eleven and entering a war that's had just such disastrous consequences for us for rock for the region..

"Is they haven't had a great ability to sort of crackdown and figure out who is talking to who i absolutely believe that they had an email or a phone record or some hard proof i do think there would be consequences in every now and then you see something like that like right now they sort of banned cellphones in the west wing personal cell phones in the west wing and those are the cell phones you can receive taxonomy you can use secret messaging apps those are the ways a lot of people in the white house preferred to communicate with reporters at one point and they did that under the guise of security but it always these crackdowns always seem to happen in moments where there were a lot of leaks coming out of the white house so i think one of the problems is and i have to say under general kelly it actually has gotten a lot better and a lot more disciplined and there's certainly some people who who don't leak it all but i think the problem is they just sort of don't there they have an inability to ferret out leaks in one other brief point to what abbey was saying that sort of tells you about how you have to cover this white house but you may notice your fear a very very close reader of the washington post that some of these inside the white house stories we have a line that i have learned is widely mocked and the rest of journalism that says this portrait of the president in this moment is the result of twenty seven interviews with senior white house officials lawmakers friends outside confidence etc and the reason we do that is partially it avoids having to like source in every single graph which disrupts the flow but more importantly the real reason we do it is because to cover this white house especially at the beginning you had to talk to that many people and my understanding and again i went as i've covered in this capacity but was there were certain people in the obama white house like if david axelrod or valerie jarrett told you something you just knew it was true same with the bush whitehouse if karl rove or whoever karen hughes told you something you could just sort of like put it in your story.
