Seems Baylor is having a hard time letting go of the idea of the Bush Library, which will almost certainly be located at SMU.
I, for one alumna, am so glad Baylor won't be saddled with this. Despite all the rhetoric, I think the idea that a George W. Bush School of Public Policy would have matched well with Baylor's Christian mission was wishful thinking at best. In the long run, the Bush administration will likely be remembered most for starting a questionably just war, and the school would likely have been in tension with the J.M. Dawson Institute's historic strong support for church-state separation. It's better for Baylor to not be saddled with such a burden.
