Gerson Watch

For people who enjoyed this, here is Washington Post columnist and former Bush speechwriter Michael Gerson, on Hardball:

Well, I worked with some very other--you know, great writers, who worked with me on [the 9/20/01] speech, worked closely with the president and Karen Hughes. But we had one day to put that speech together. The president wanted--called in the morning, wanted a draft by 7:00 o`clock that night. And so it was, you know, fairly heroic to put together a speech of that scale.

 --Isaac Chotiner
