It’s the first of November, and although there isn’t a presidential race to be decided, Election Day will still be upon us after this weekend. And on this Friday, just in case you were a little down about not being able to bubble in a candidate for the Oval Office, the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum in Dallas will at least let you pretend to there. In the Oval Office, we mean. Or maybe the Situation Room.
In the Decision Points Theater in the museum, visitors get to have an interactive experience and, as the The New York Times wrote in an article it ran in April on the museum, “will be presented with the stark choices that confronted the nation’s 43rd president: invade Iraq or leave Saddam Hussein in power? Deploy federal troops after Hurricane Katrina or rely on local forces? Bail out Wall Street or let the banks fail?”
NPR also covered this feature of the museum; you can read that piece here.
Make it a great weekend, and, if you’re in Dallas, you be the decider. And, a little early, but don’t forget to vote!
