Story Behind This Picture

The story behind this photo is very unusual. In 2005, President George W. Bush had asked both his father and Bill Clinton to work together on a fund for Hurricane Katrina relief in New Orleans. Clinton, of course, had beaten Bush back in 1992. They weren’t supposed to be friendly.

RARELY SEEN TOGETHER

During that campaign, many believe  President George H.W. Bush don’t think he had a high regard for Clinton, because it was a tough loss for him. He really thought he would be re-elected.

BECOMING FRIENDS

They were  rarely seen together over the years, except at formal ceremonies. They were together at Richard Nixon’s funeral and at the White House for the official unveiling of Bush’s portrait. But New Orleans was the first time anyone ever saw them together like this—quietly, away from other people.
