Tony Snow was a decent guy who some will continue to vilify as the face of the Bush administration. Tony Snow was not GW Bush, and I find his premature demise a bit shocking and very sad.
It's always sad to see someone die at that age, but I had more respect for him before he became an Official Liar for the Bush administration.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
