By Bill Redlin

The Miller Center of Public Affairs at the University of Virginia is preparing to record an oral history of the presidency of George W. Bush.

The center in Charlottesville and the George W. Bush Foundation announced the project Thursday. About 100 interviews will be done and will include key figures of the Bush White House and Cabinet, as well as members of Congress, foreign leaders and outside political advisers.

Mr. Bush says the project will offer a comprehensive look at what it was like to lead the country during what he describes as extraordinary challenges. The Miller center's Oral History Project has done similar work with Presidents Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton.
