It's relevant to his interests and nominally about him and the media and advertising industries his company has managed to upend and dominate.

A Vicious Entanglement, Part II: Idealism Chastened in Vietnam
Jon Askonas: "There’s a perverse cycle that takes us from Bush’s earnest nation-building in Iraq to Obama’s extension of an American strategy in Afghanistan he didn’t believe would work. Who should Americans prefer: the sincere and idealistic Kennedy who gets us involved in Vietnam or the cynical and realistic Nixon who ignominiously extracts us?
