Bill Clinton, George W. Bush join hands on scholars program at their libraries

Posted By on Mon, Sep 8, 2014 at 1:23 PM


Former Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush shared jovial moments in Washington today as they announced a new joint program involving their presidential libraries and those of George H. W. Bush and Lyndon B. Johnson.

The Presidential Leadership Scholars program is meant provide education about presidential decision-making as a way of helping the careers of people in business, public service and the military.

The elder George Bush sent a letter urging the two men to keep it brief. They were jocularly, joking about presidential elections, and making generous remarks about each other.
