President-elect Barack Obama met with the four living members of the U.S. presidents’ club yesterday (George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter). The image above will forever be hailed in history books as every living U.S. president came together at the White House for a “power lunch” to hash over the world’s challenges with the president-elect. This is the first meeting of its kind since the days of President Ronald Regan.? Check out the AP news coverage below:
“This is an extraordinary gathering,” Obama said, looking plenty at ease in the humbling office that will soon be his.
“All the gentlemen here understand both the pressures and possibilities of this office,” Obama said. “And for me to have the opportunity to get advice, good counsel and fellowship with these individuals is extraordinary. And I’m very grateful to all of them.” (Source)
