'I Have An Idea'

“Jean, I have an idea.” Those were the scariest words in the English language for Jean Becker during the 25 years of working as Chief of Staff for President George Walker Herbert Bush after his presidency in 1995 and as First Lady Barbara Bush’s deputy press secretary.

Jean joined a panel, along with a distinguished group of experts who worked closely with both President Bush Senior and Junior as well as the first ladies, after screening of CNN’s six-part original series that examines the Bush family and their impact on Amercian political history at the U.S. Navy Memorial Burke Theater in Washington, DC.


Narrated by Academy Award nominated actor Ed Harris, the series explores the Bush family’s internal dynamics, the influential matriarchs, sibling ambitions, and unceasing competitive spirit, which drove them to power. The series premiered CNN Sunday, March 3rd art 9:00 pm titled, “Fathers and Sons.”
