Clinton concluded his remarks with a challenge to Bush couched in terms of his own failure - "where we fell short ... the biggest disappointment in the world to me ... peace in the Middle East ... I did all I could." He then faced Bush: "But when we had seven years of progress toward peace, there was one whole year when, for the first time in the history of the state of Israel, not one person died of a terrorist attack, when the Palestinians began to believe they could have a shared future. And so, Mr President, again, I say: I hope you get to cross over into the promised land of Middle East peace. We have a good opportunity, and we are all praying for you."

I was not able to view the picture, but the vivid description & subsequent psychoanalysis of GWB was quite shocking indeed. I think that if the reporter's & your interpretation of the interior workings of his mind is accurate (though really, there is no way to prove this as none of us are psychic), it might be grounds for possible impeachment, or at least an expose on 60 Minutes. The mere thought of a person in a high-ranking political position displaying the attributes of assertiveness, competitiveness, and "alpha male behavior" is quite aberrant; I think only Adolph Hitler himself ever displayed similar behavior. As for GWB's sudden departure from the event, I must agree that it was quite rude and uncalled-for--it's not like there would be anything more pressing going on in the world for the President of the United States not to attend the Clinton Library gala in its entirety. It's on the same level as Bill getting a bj in the oval office by one of his interns while he was supposed to be on-call & focused as the leader of the United States--but no, wait, Bush's faux pas is worse because he is *Bush* after all & we all hate every single thing he does.
Down with Bush! Viva La Revolution!

I'm the president, I'm first.
Good one Tesla, Bush is the President and should show more class and decorum. He acts like a uncouth(sp) person. A man with as much power as he has show also have class.
You have to earn respect before it is given.
Then, when the presidents were announced, Bush tried to push his way past Clinton at the library door to be first in line, against the already accepted protocol for the event, as though the walk to the platform was a contest for alpha male......",
