"Bush suffers from an addictive personality, and was an alcoholic. I don't know his present condition ... but the one who examines his personality finds that he is addicted to two other faults lying and gambling," al-Zawahri said in the audiotape."

"Bush, who is now 60, has acknowledged he had a problem with drinking but gave up alcohol when he was 40 years old."

It takes a strong person to realize they had a problem, to overcome it and to admit it in public.
I wonder how many 60 plus year old politicians there are in Washington, other than Ted Kennedy, who have a problem with booze?
