'Deep Throat' was George H W Bush?

Author, Adrian Havill, suspects 'Deep Throat' was George H.W. Bush.

“It was Richard Nixon who urged Bush to leave a safe seat in Congress, hinting there would be a position as assistant Secretary of the Treasury waiting for him if he failed to win a Senate seat held by Ralph Yarborough. When Bush lost, Nixon reneged and asked him to take the U.N. slot instead but teased him by hinting he would be the replacement for Spiro Agnew in 1972. Instead, he was given the thankless task of heading the Republican National Committee in 1973. The elder Bush got his revenge in the end, by standing up at a cabinet meeting in August of 1974 and becoming the first person in Nixon's inner circle to ask the President to resign."

Wouldn't that be weird if it were George H W Bush? I think it's Al Haig... eventually, we'll know. Cool blog you have here.
