ABC's George Stephanopoulos (subscription required) led with the Woodward tapes. "He told Woodward that George Bush fought the wrong war for the wrong reasons," Stephanopoulos summarized, while pointing out that "a year earlier Ford had forcefully defended the decision to go to war," calling it "totally justified." NBC's Andrea Mitchell added that Ford was "not known to have offered Bush advice" on Iraq. Ford despaired of his one-time Chief of Staff. Cheney had "turned pugnacious."
Stephanopoulos promised a follow-up tomorrow: Ford to Woodward on Richard Nixon. Ford and Nixon had "a very intimate relationship--which would be surprising."
