Episode Summary

EDIT
Michael Gerson
AIRED:
Michael Gerson, former presidential adviser and chief speechwriter who penned most of George W. Bush's speeches, is considered by many Democrats and Republicans to be the most influential White House speechwriter since the Kennedy administration's Ted Sorenson. Known around the administration as the "moral compass," Gerson was more than a speechwriter, he was also a trusted insider helping to make policy decisions. Gerson composed some of the most memorable President George W. Bush speeches such as the addresses delivered after September 11, the Columbia shuttle explosion, and the State of the Union addresses.As senior adviser during Bush's second term, he sought more funding to fight AIDS and a plan to end the Darfur genocide. Time magazine named him as one o the most influential individuals in the U.S. Gerson's noteworthy phrases for President Bush include "Axis of Evil" and "the armies of compassion." Gerson has said one of his favorite speeches was given at the National Cathedral on September 14, 2001, a few days after the September 11, 2001 attacks, which included the following famous passage: "Grief and tragedy and hatred are only for a time. Goodness, remembrance, and love have no end." Gerson believed in employing language like Martin Luther King Jr. that "unites people" - Oxonian Societymoreless
