The Times sits down with Bob Dylan to look at the US president through Zimmerman's eyes:
[Bill Flanagan]: Do you think he’ll make a good president?
BD: I have no idea. He’ll be the best president he can be. Most of those guys come into office with the best of intentions and leave as beaten men. Johnson would be a good example of that … Nixon, Clinton in a way, Truman, all the rest of them going back. You know, it’s like they all fly too close to the sun and get burned.
It says a lot about the last eight years of US history that "having good intentions" is enough to make a White House occupant noteworthy. But does Dylan really believe that Nixon had good intentions? Really?
