A Review of And the Good News Is...

Over the years that I worked for him he became much more to me than my boss or even the President of the United States.  He became like a second father, a friend, and a confidant.--Dana Perino 
-I ended up loving this book and Dana Perino much more than I expected too.  She followed Tony Snow as the White House Press Secretary and those were big shoes to fill.

What I loved about her and the book:
-Her optimism-she has this in common with her former boss, George W. Bush.  Optimism endears me to people and was one of the things I loved about W.
-Her love and loyalty for George W. Bush
-Her patriotism
-Her unashamed defense of being a conservative
-She too was upset by Scott McClellan's book unfairly attacking the Bush Administration
-She reaffirmed my respect for Bush as a man and a president
-She reaffirmed my love and respect for Tony Snow
-I appreciated the advice she gave, and it was helpful to me
-She was able to say nice things about Obama and Biden as men, even though she disagrees with them.
-I enjoyed hearing about how she met and fell in love with her husband.

-What was incredible to me as I read the book, was how emotional I still get about the loss of Tony Snow

-I can't recommend this book highly enough.  If you want to be inspired by a strong woman, Dana is your gal.  She represents conservative women well.  I'll be watching The Five much more often.
