All The President’s Men

Let’s Do Lunch!

On Wednesday, departing President George W. Bush and President-elect Barack Obama will sit down for a meeting in the Oval Office (oooh, fancy!) before joining the three living former presidents, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush and Jimmy Carter for a historic, if not occasionally awkward lunch.

The gathering, less than two weeks before Bush and his wife Laura leave the White House for their cozy, new palace in Dallas, was actually Obama’s idea (duh!) but Bush “readily agreed,” marking the first time all living presidents have gotten together at the White House since 1981.

And it should be quite some gathering.

Anytime you take one bumbling outgoing president, add the exact opposite to replace him, throw in an overbearing, slightly less disastrous father, a soft-spoken southern evangelical with anti-Semitic tendencies, and a charming sex-addict desperate to be back in the White House, you know it’s gonna be good.

The only question is who gets stuck next to Carter?
