Is there a new member of the Bush family?The Clintons and the Bushes have always been close. As members of the ruling elitekeep in mind that these two families have controlled the Executive Branch of our government for the last 17 years (25 if you include Bush Senior's stint as VP)they have much more in common with each other than they do with their respective constituents.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President George W. Bush says Bill Clinton has become so close to his father that the Democratic former president is like a member of the family.
Former President George Bush has worked with Clinton to raise money for victims of the Asian tsunami and the hurricane disaster along the U.S. Gulf Coast.
Asked about his father and Clinton, Bush quipped, "Yes, he and my new brother."
"That's a good relationship. It's a fun relationship to watch," Bush said in an interview with CBS News broadcast on Sunday.
While attending Pope John Paul's funeral, Bush said, "It was fun to see the interplay between dad and Clinton. One of these days, I'll be a member of the ex-president's club. ... I'll be looking for something to do."
What's funny is that, while their leaders spend quality time together, the rank and file Democrats and Republicans continue to tear at each other's throats. It's almost as if they really believe there's a difference between the two major parties.
