George Washington Was a Good Man

On December 31, 2006 on C-SPAN2, I heard part of a presentation by Harlow Giles Unger on his new book on George Washington.  I found the presentation wise, sincere, impassioned and delightful.  Almost every story and fact was new to me.  It appears that George Washington was an inventor, a solid businessman, and in most ways a genuinely good person.  Great leaders do not have to be good people in order to be great leaders, but it is nice when they are.
