Cleaning Up George's Mess

Harper's Magazine this month has a great series of essays called "Undoing Bush: How to repair eight years of sabotage, bungling, and neglect." Here's the intro:
"George W. Bush has done more to transform the nation than any American president since Franklin D. Roosevelt. Indeed, he may well be the perfect anti-Roosevelt. He has taken a prosperous nation and mired it in war, replaced our national composure with terror, and left behind him a legacy of damage so profound that repairing it will likely be the work of generations. Before the next administration can return to solving the already considerable problems the nation faced in 2000, it must begin to correct the misdeeds and missteps of the current one."
Over the course of the next week or so, I'll be summarizing the conclusions each of the commentators made about George's Mess and then talk about what needs to be done: a road map for the next administration.
