The Return of Frank Skeffington

AS THE hours are counted off to George Bush's official retirement and his legacy revisionists rise to his defense,   I recall the waning moments of Frank Skeffington in The Last Hurrah as one of his loyal gofers bends over the  old ex-mayor's sickbed. 

"Ah, Frank," he said  softly. "You've done grand things.  Grand, grand things." 
 "Among others," Skeffington said.  "But no regrets. No regrets at all..."
