People were born to learn, this makes everyone they're own expert in the topic they love best.

Greg: GWB may be the only Republican on the planet not criticizing Obama for pretty much anything and everything, including breathing.... Given how much blame he's taken (mostly rightly, IMO), it would have been very easy--almost expected--for him to lash out given the chance (a la Cheney, e.g.). But he's chosen not to, which brings a little dignity back to the office, and qualifies, in my mind, as "the high road."

I see your point, Michael, and you're right. The sad truth is as you seem to be saying; the "high road" now only demands that a past president surprise us by not lashing out (the obfuscation of truth notwithstanding) while his vice president exercises no such restraint or dignity. In that context, I will give W his due.

@Michael: I appreciate your reasoning and it's also interesting to know that GWB is not banned from international travel as has been suggested. :-)
