When considering the legacy of a president, separating the man from the office can be a challenging task. 

This is the focus of the new HBO documentary “41”, which examines the presidency of George H.W. Bush from a personal angle.

Created with the input and oversight of President Bush 41 himself, the documentary chronicles the defining moments of both his term in office and career after the White House. 

Jerry Weintraub, executive producer for the film, joined us on Wednesday to discuss the film and his longstanding personal relationship with George H.W. Bush. Weintraub called Bush an “extraordinary, fantastic man” who was “so important” in his life and career.  As Weintraub and Jon Meacham agree, America is starting to feel the legacy and impact of Bush 41.
