It was time for someone to brag about the accomplishments of President George H.W. Bush.

That’s why his first chief of staff, former New Hampshire Governor John Sununu, wrote a book titled “The Quiet Man: The Indispensable Presidency of George H.W. Bush”.

Sununu, who was at the Bush Library on the 91st birthday of the 41st President, visited with reporters about the book and about the 2016 Republican presidential candidates.
