Clinton and Bush Introduce Leadership Program and a Few Laughs Former Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush have just introduced a new six month leadership training program that anyone can apply to. Clinton said, “The initiative will encourage Americans to have vigorous debates, serious disagreements, knockdown, drag out fights and somehow come to ultimately a resolution that enables the country to keep moving forward.” The new leadership program will kick off in February 2015. The intended goal of the program is to gain core leadership skills while studying case studies, discussions and lectures. The main case studies will be conducted on the terms in office of former presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, George H.W. Bush and Lyndon B. Johnson. “We want people from all walks of life and different political persuasions,” Bush stated. He goes on to say, “We want people who have shown the capacity to succeed. People who work hard, and who work with others in a good way.” During the press conference both former presidents made light of their opposite party status with good natured jokes and jabs. They also joked around about their lives as ex-presidents. At one point Bush joked that his book to be released in November was “a love story” about his relationship with his father. This prompted Clinton to retort, “I learned a lot from him too, but I’m not making any money off of it.” It’s good to see these two former presidents unite for a good reason and put any party difference aside. Stay tuned for more information on how to enroll in this leadership program as those details have yet to be fully announced. Source: Berenson, T. (2014, September 8).
