President Obama is asking his two immediate predecessors – George W. Bush and Bill Clinton – to come together to lead the nation’s humanitarian and relief efforts to Haiti in the wake of the earthquake that has ravaged the Caribbean island.
The partnership is expected to be announced by the White House in the coming days, after officials have a better handle on the full scope of the devastation. Mr. Obama called Mr. Bush on Wednesday, aides to both men said, and Mr. Bush agreed to do whatever he could to help.

Is he tapping Israel and their leaders for anything?

i'm sure he's tapping clinton, but I doubt he's tapping bush.
If my memory hasn't failed me, Bush would have been still scratching his head at this point... Right?
"I think if you ask George Bush whether the government acted up to its ability in responding to Katrina, I think the answer to that would be no," Gibbs said. "I think the actions that were taken to deal with the humanitarian crisis from the tsunami, on the other hand, I think worked quite well."

Since we are speculating... Perhaps he is offering Bush a chance at some meager form of redemption?
And perhaps to help teach Clinton racial compassion and tolerance?

Well he probably seen the extraordinary job Bush did with hurricane katrina and thought to himself he had to have Bush's help.
That's not the reason though. He most likely pressured into it to show bi-partisanship.
Personally i don't want to see Bush or Cheney again.
