Presidential Gathering

Posted by Maureen Wednesday, January 07, 2009 Labels:

This gathering was the first time since 1981 that all the living US Presidents were gathered together in the White House.

From the NYT:

President-elect Barack Obama met in the Oval Office today with President Bush and three former occupants of the White House: former Presidents Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush and Jimmy Carter.

Mr. Obama called the meeting an “extraordinary gathering” and thanked President Bush for hosting the group.

“All the gentlemen here understand both the pressures and possibilities of this office, and for me to have the opportunity to get advice, good counsel and fellowship with these individuals is extraordinary and I’m very grateful to all of them. But again thank you, Mr. President, for hosting.”
