    Why not? They are quite enlightening.

    They generally go over the decisions that they made during their time in office, always presenting things in a biased way to ensure they look better then they were. I perfer poli sci books writen by people like Zbigniew Kazimierz Brzezinski, who has written some quality books. Or reading articles written by various think tanks like AEI, CFR or Jamestown for example. Some of the indepth articles are far more enlightening the having some ex politician dumb down the reasons for his actions for a mass audience

    They are expected to put things in a biased perspective. That is the purpose of a memoir. They need to have their perspective thrown out there not only for the edification of the masses but also for the historian who can keep in mind that which was going through his or her head at the time. Political science books are interesting too, but you have to consider the mindset that people like Zbig move through. It is academic just as it is biased towards certain perspectives. I, too, also read think-tank materials and listen or watch their meetings. The problem is that in order to arrive at some of the points that political scientists arrive at, you have to dance with memoirs to gain more perspective. It is what gives political science its juice.

    I'm primarily a historical perspective fellow, but have spent much time looking through works of political science to aid my historical pursuit (sometimes my historical research was purely looking at political scientists). You need these memoirs to really see what gives political science its clout. Perhaps I am just too nerdish for that too work for many people, but it's what I do.

    Obama doesn't have an R after is name, so it's OK when he plagiarizes... isn't that right PB?

    The point of the thread was that. It was merely unfortunate that this seems to be an exaggeration of an already vivid imagination by the author of the Huffington Post "blog".

    True.

    Biden ACTUALLY PLAGIARIZED on multiple occasions from law school to politics.

    Bush wrote a book where he related stories from his advisers and some retard from huffpost flipped his ****.

    Again, it's ironic that the liberals who accuse President Bush of being not much of a reader or a writer are also ....not much for reading or writing.
