Bush is cooking more mildly.

Oy. Politico reports this gem:

"I would compare President Bush to a retired master chef," said former Utah Gov. Mike Leavitt, who was Environmental Protection Agency administrator under Bush. "Food is abundant, there are many who would be interested in the cuisine, but he's not going to cook until he feels like it. There are very few things that stimulate a desire to cook like a great kitchen.

Politico explains: "Leavitt was referring to the just-opened George W. Bush Presidential Library and Institute." Bush recently made some rare public comments, supporting both immigration reform and his work to end AIDS in Africa. He also made some very neutral statements about gay marriage.

Good cookin', Dubya.
