3. Some of these friendships really were strange bedfellows...

But I think they found they had more in common than they had real differences. No one knew better what each one was facing than another who had held the office.

4. Who would have thought W could be so gracious?

 

President George W. Bush invited the entire Club membership to lunch at the White House to meet Obama before the inauguration in January, 2009. “We want you to succeed,” he told Obama. “Whether we’re Democrat or Republican, we all care deeply about this country. . . . All of us who have served in this office understand that the office transcends the individual.”

Doesn't get him off the hook for the terrible damage he did but I thought this was classy.

I knew that Ford and Carter became close friends, but LBJ and Ike?! Who would have thunk?!
