Haiti Earthquake Relief - The Clinton Bush Haiti Fund

By
Real Estate Agent with Windermere Real Estate - Palm Springs CalBRE# 01339266

This morning I was pleasantly surprised at the picture I saw on TV.

It was President Obama with Bill Clinton and George Bush, announcing the "Clinton Bush Haiti Fund"

CNN reported today that "President Barack Obama announced that former Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton have agreed to lead an effort to raise money for Haiti".

That is good to see. It's an example of finding something positive in a bad situation. Thank you!

Chaos and tragedy, delivered by the universe/not "mankind", can often be the glue that brings factions together.

Hi Stew,

Clinton and the elder Bush did an amazing job after Katrina.  Just seeing them working together gave me hope that we can rise above the petty politics !

Stewart,

That is very classy. And, this sort of relief effort should not be partisan.

It just goes to show that we are all human, we care deeply about the pain of others and will put all things aside to help. I would expect nothing less.

It's a shame that it takes something like this for the two parties to pull together and very sad that they can not extend that relationship beyond disaster relief.

Stewart,

I saw that and not sure what to make of it. Clinton has an affinity with Haiti. Hilary and he honeymooned there. Bush?

It's great to see these two past presidents working together to benefit the poorest of the poor.  I hope that it serves as an example that we can have different views and still work together amicably.  I am proud of them both!
