Description

Unprecedented! Epic! Extraordinary! Unique! Historic! Those were just some of the adjectives tossed around by mooks in suits – thoroughly important in their own right, no doubt – who shared the emcee gig yesterday for a mano-a-mano gabfest summit featuring the last two presidents of the United States of America. On stage together, for the first time, right here in Toronto: George Bush and Bill Clinton. Nos. 43 and 42, starring in A Conversation With Presidents. Here's the shocking thing: As an contest between two men who once stood astride the most powerful nation on Earth, it was Bush – beleaguered, besieged, be-damned Bush – who scored higher on sheer entertainment performance. Whodathunk it? He out-charmed, out-quipped, out-riposted and out-endeared a guy who was, at least until Barack Obama, the most publicly engaging president in modern history. But it was a close thing.
