Cry Me A River

In a series of remarkably candid admissions by a sitting president, Mr. Bush confides to author John Draper that he has been "sustained by the discipline of the faithful experience" during the most difficult days of his presidency.

"I've got God's shoulder to cry on.

And I cry a lot," Mr. Bush says in Dead Certain: The Presidency of George W. Bush, which was released to U.S. bookstores yesterday.

"I do a lot of crying in this job. I'll bet I've shed more tears than you can count, as president. I'll shed some tomorrow."

"Self-pity is the worst thing that can happen to a presidency. This is a job where you can have a lot of self-pity."
