Bush speaking at Clinton Library opening
WHITE HOUSE (AP) -- President Bush will be among those saluting his predecessor today at the opening of the Clinton Presidential Library.
The presidentďż˝s joining his father and former President Jimmy Carter at the
Little Rock ceremonies. Of the living ex-presidents, only Gerald Ford wonďż˝t be there.
White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan calls the opening a ďż˝happy and historic occasion.ďż˝
Even though Bill Clinton denied his father a second term, Bush has gone out of his way to praise the 42nd president. At a June unveiling for Clintonďż˝s official White House portrait, he praised Clintonďż˝s ďż˝deepďż˝ policy knowledge and ďż˝forward-looking spirit.ďż˝
Bush is stopping in Little Rock on the way to a weekend Pacific Rim summit in Santiago, Chile.
