The whole thought of this is that everyone has different viewpoints on politics -
I bet you know people that have entirely different viewpoints than yourself that are very nice and kind people - fun people. You don't discuss politics with them and you simply enjoy their company.
That is what is so great about someone like Ellen - she likes the person - he might have a sense of humor like her, maybe they both love horses or same sitcom.
You do not know the Bush's personally so how the heck could you know whether you would like them or not.
But you are not being kind as Ellen suggests - you an only point out things you think he is responsible for - there is whole government out there during that time with all sorts of different backgrounds.
I am not delving into politics but complementing on someone that is big enough to see through others that have differences and see the good part of that person.
This is the same thing I have always told my kids - you don't have to be good friends with everyone, but you need to be kind to everyone.
