De facto President George W. Bush likes to compare himself to Harry Truman, hoping (in vain) that his popularity twenty years after his ingloriously damaging presidency has ended will be higher than it is now.

But this report about FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover's plan to round up 12,000 people - 97% American citizens - for special hearings purely based on suspicions they were "disloyal" shows that Hoover may be a better point of historical comparison for Bush than Truman.

Although as far as I know, Bush rarely wears dresses.
