Bush names his regrets, considers writing book





President Bush said today he plans to return "straight home to Texas" after he leaves office on January 20 and "may write a book." Bush said he regrets some of his more blunt statements on terrorism over the years and said he wishes he had not spoen in front of a "Mission Accomplished" banner only a month after U.S. troops in Iraq were deployed.

"I regret saying some things I shouldn't have said," Bush told CNN's Heidi Collins when asked to reflect on his regrets over his two terms as president. "Like 'dead or alive' and 'bring 'em on.' My wife reminded me that, hey, as president of the United States, be careful what you say."

The interview, aboard the USS Intrepid in New York, came after the president addressed a Veterans Day ceremony.
