    OH MY!


    It is, according to organizers, "the hottest ticket in political history": On February 25th, former Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton will share a stage at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.

    Interested spectators can pay $60 for the cheap seats or up to $160 to be closer to the action. They can also shell out $1,250 to attend a ****tail reception with the former presidents in addition to the discussion.

    I think that is pretty fascinating just from a historical standpoint.

    Sorry looks like Bush turned tail. I don't blame him, who'd want to be a punching bag?

    It doesn't look to me like Bush is the one who called it off. I know you really want to believe in fairy tales, but at worst it looks like a mutual decision.

    Clinton, Bush Radio City debate called off

    "Clinton spokesman Matt McKenna said the appearance was never slated to be a "debate" and was actually a moderated panel discussion with the 42nd and 43rd leaders of the free world.

    "This event ... was supposed to be a discussion between the two former presidents, and has been cancelled because it was not being billed as such by an overeager promoter," McKenna siad."

    I didn't think this would happen as I feel it is somewhat unpresidential for two presidents too debate post presidency. I feel this way cuz it's unfair to the man in office. These two men have had their chance, and have served their country, how about letting the guy in charge right now, do his job, without two former bosses duking it out in public. It simply didn't sound right to me when I first heard it, especially since these guys are best suited to be cordial to each other, for the sake of raising money for charity. Sitting on a panel and discussing issues, as they say was the original plan, seems more appropriate than them debating on stage. Too bad that won't happen, but oh well.

    BTW, Slick Willy would have easily mopped the floor with GW IMO. Bill Clinton is as smooth as they come in these settings. He could probably convince you it's raining outside, while your sun bathing at the beach.

    Wasn't there some type of debate between Clinton and the elder Bush in a segment of 60 Minutes every week?

    Former Presidents keeping quiet just adds to the conspiracy of it all.

    No, it's tradition among them to keep quiet. It is one of the few traditions they have kept for centuries no matter what party they are in.

    Sounds like a trap to keep the heat off Prince Obama, Clinton can publicly make Bush look like a "moron" and blame him for all of Obama's crap, Bush should stay down in Texas and play with his lawnmower, this debate is a Bush Haters dream come true, Beautiful Michelle will have a Collard Greens party with the stuff she grew over the Septic Tank.
