Former US Presidents, George W. Bush and Clinton, in the Presidential Leadership Scholars launch and graduation, interacted with each other in a friendly manner and praised each other. Clinton beat Bush Sr in the election but George W. Bush described Clinton as a humble and gracious winner. Such images are moving but hard to imagine in our hypocritical political culture. One can compare that to the relationships between Ma Ying-jeou, Chen Shui-bian and Lee Teng-hui. Leaders’ character, genuine tolerance and kindness are also very important.
‘Bush-Clinton friendship is hard 2 imagine in our culture. Leaders’ character, tolerance & kindness r also important’
