Bill Clinton: George H.W. Bush’s Oval Office note to me revealed the heart of who he was…
By Bill Clinton – December 1, 2018
Bill Clinton was the 42nd president of the United States.
On Jan. 20, 1993, I entered the Oval Office for the first time as president. As is the tradition, waiting for me was a note from my predecessor, George Herbert Walker Bush. It read:
When I walked into this office just now I felt the same sense of wonder and respect that I felt four years ago. I know you will feel that, too.
I wish you great happiness here. I never felt the loneliness some Presidents have described.
