Ex-President George H. W. Bush joins the club.
The former president joins the "Friends of Bill" club, that is:
Former President Bill Clinton said Monday that the first thing his wife Hillary will do when she reaches the White House is dispatch him and his predecessor, President George H.W. Bush, on an around-the-world mission to repair the damage done to America's reputation by the current president — Bush's son, George W. Bush.One would think that if there was one person in the world that Bill Clinton wouldn't dare to treat like a personal lackey, it would be another former president -- especially a former president who set personal feelings aside to work with Clinton for humanitarian causes. Wrong!
"Well, the first thing she intends to do, because you can do this without passing a bill, the first thing she intends to do is to send me and former President Bush and a number of other people around the world to tell them that America is open for business and cooperation again," Clinton said in response to a question from a supporter about what his wife's "number one priority" would be as president.
