Eight years ago, Bill Clinton held a huge to-do at Andrew AFB right at a time that detracted directly from a key ceremonial part of Bush’s inaugural festivities — some key part of the parade, if I remember correctly. It was televised, self-indulgent, self-reverential, and way overlong. It was Clinton doing the “me, me, me, me, me, me!” routine. And it was utterly classless, one last attempt to hold onto attention on what really was, and should have been, Bush’s day.
Tomorrow, Bush shows how it really ought to be done. From a WH press release:
1:25 pm THE FORMER PRESIDENT makes Remarks at Departure Ceremony
Andrews Air Force Base – Hangar 6 | Andrews Air Force Base, Maryland
Note that: CLOSED PRESS. It will not be televised. It will be low-key. It will not take the focus away from Obama on Obama’s day.
What that is, is CLASS. Not as in social strata, but as classiness, an element of character. It speaks well of Bush.
Meanwhile, I guarantee that the exiting Bush staffers won’t vandalized the White House offices, leaving juvenile booby traps and ruined computer keyboards, the way the puerile Clinton staffers did when they left office…..
