Michael Gerson, Bush's Speech Writer

Here is a link to an interesting article in the New Yorker about Michael Gerson, Bush's speech writer. Gerson seems like a man who is serious about his faith and really cares about issues of justice and poverty.
Jim Towey, who directs the White House’s Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives, which steers government funds to religious groups that provide social services, explained Gerson’s role in the Bush Administration this way: “There are some people in the White House who are more conservative than compassionate, and some who are more compassionate than conservative. Mike is more compassionate than conservative.”
