John Henry Sununu served as the 75th Governor of New Hampshire (1983–89) and later as White House Chief of Staff under President George H. W. Bush. He is a member of the National Academy of Engineers' Committee on Public Engineering Policy and has served as a member of the President's Council on Environmental Quality Advisory Committee. Sununu chaired the National Governors Association, the Coalition of Northeastern Governors, and the Republican Governors Association. From 1992 until 1998, he co-hosted CNN's nightly Crossfire program, a news/public affairs discussion program. Now he joins Larry King to discuss the 2016 Presidential hopefuls, as well as his new book, "“The Quiet Man: The Indispensable Presidency of George H.W. Bush”".
According to a description by publisher Harper Collins, Sununu's book is a “major reassessment” and “long overdue appreciation of the man and his universally underrated and misunderstood presidency.”
Sununu divides the book into chapters on the key points of Bush’s 1989-1993 term, including the collapse of the Soviet Union, the “Desert Storm” first Gulf War, the Clean Air Act, civil rights, the Americans with Disabilities Act and the appointment of New Hampshire’s David Souter to the U.S. Supreme Court.
