ORANGEBURG, South Carolina (CNN) Former President Bill Clinton said Monday that the first thing his wife Hillary will do when she reaches the White House is dispatch him and his predecessor, President George H.W. Bush, on an around-the-world mission to repair the damage done to America's reputation by the current president Bush's son, George W. Bush.
"Well, the first thing she intends to do, because you can do this without passing a bill, the first thing she intends to do is to send me and former President Bush and a number of other people around the world to tell them that America is open for business and cooperation again," Clinton said in response to a question from a supporter about what his wife's "number one priority" would be as president.
A spokesman for the George H.W. Bush was not immediately available to comment on whether the former president would chip in some diplomatic help after his son leaves office next year.

Bill Clinton said former president George H.W. Bush will he lp fix damage done to America's reputation by his son, George W. Bush.
Ok ...It is past time for the Bush family to play nice
right G H W Bush?
BJ presents a problem for me: I do not know whom to detest more...him or Jimmuh.
By the end of 2008 we will have had 20 years of Clinton and Bush. Enough is enough.
I wonder if George Bush the younger will every figure out why I was so danged unhappy about his use of Bill Clinton during his Presidency. Not going after Clinton was something I didn't agree with, but I learned to accept it, but to actually give the guy a position of honor?
“Bill Clinton said former president George H.W. Bush will he lp fix damage done to America’s reputation by his son, George W. Bush.”
Well, at least whatever negative effect the MSM was able to help create, that can at least be fixed.
The damage to America’s reputation that Bill Clinton caused, cannot.
We’ve had a Bush or a Clinton in the White House since January 1981. Bush the first was the V.P. for Reagan. If Hillary were to be elected to the Presidency, we would stand a very good chance of having a Bush or a Clinton in the White House for 35 straight years.
Can I throw up now.
I now understand why Old Bush lost to Clinton to begin with in 1992....Because he’s an idiot. It’s not the young Bush who’s stupid, it’s his old man. And I voted for 41. What a waste. To think that Bush Sr. would even talk to a Clinton after the way they have treated his son....his own son whose first agenda item was to undo the damage created by his father’s (GHW Bush’s) tax hike. Disgusting. If this is true, he’s disloyal to his own son. He’s treating Clinton better than he is his own flesh and blood.
What a boring blowhard. Clinton is the perfect icon for his generation of idiots who think getting away with oral sex makes him cool. If it wasn't for Lewinsky, he wouldn't be nearly as popular as he is with his constituency. He's all about the "bad boy" thing.
He has never said anything of interest, yet he has this rep as a great communicator because he can yammer on and on at the drop of the hat. The perfect role model for self-obsessed bores everywhere.
I hate to say it/ but you're right.
The families plan on sitting down during the Christmas Holiday (is that PC to write?) in Kenneybunkport to talk about the role of GHWB in the Clinton WH.
America must keep the dynasty going. s/
That’s enough to give one nightmares.
Bill Clinton really is delusional, isn’t he?
The ego of the people in indescribable. Another reason that there will never be a USS Bill Clinton aircraft carrier. It couldn’t contain his ego.
George H.W. Bush isn’t the idiot. The idiot is anyone who actually believes any of the crap that BJ Clinton spews.
You mean Bill would go to Kosovo and promise the money to get his statue finished.
Desperate attempt to placate the moonbats, and give the “impression” that it’s actually Bill in charge for the Iowa Democrats...
What’s truly sad, Hillary thinks the average Democrat voter really is that stupid, and many Democrat Voters actually will buy into this nonsense...
"I would fall for this sort of thing, except that the CLinton campaign telegraphed that this is exactly what they were planning on doing - showing the softer side of Hillary, in a campaign swing through Iowa on her "Hilly copter".
No, I kid you not, that was the latest big idea from highly paid political consultants - "Hilly Copter". I feel sorry for people who contributed to the campaign and had their money wasted on that.
So Hillary crying is not real, it is another faked-up campaign deal. And I know this because the campaign told us they were going to do this a week ago.
It's like Al Gore or John Kerry all over again. She's not going to figure out that she just has to be HERSELF until it is too late.
People can tell from 100 yards away when it is an act and when it is real. And Hillary comes off as an act.
Which is too bad."
This stuff is almost as good as reading DU.
In the public arena, I believe it is somewhat appropriate to couch your comments. I wouldn’t want to see the Elder Bush popping off on Clinton, any more than I want to see Carter shoot his mouth off on policy.
That being said, the Clintons basicly took a dump on both Presidents Bush. I would never have agreed to participate in any public effort that included Bill Clinton. I don’t care how positive the effort was.
Bill Clinton is a criminal. He skated, and I accept that, but there isn’t a chance in hell that I would help to rehab his standing.
It’s my guess now that Clinton is speaking out of school. I don’t think Bush has signed on to anything of the like. However, it is remotely possible he did. And if so, your comments are right on target IMO. I sure hope he had enough class not to have done so.
Both President Bushes have always been eager to kiss up to the Clintons.
UPDATE: The Republican National Committee issued this statement in response to Clinton’s comments:
“In 2009, a Republican president will be working with our friends and allies abroad to continue to keep our nation safe,” said RNC spokesman Danny Diaz. “The American people expect our leaders both current and former to present serious solutions to the very real challenges confronting our nation.”
The whole damn Repblican party (From ALL Presidents on down) needs to show ABSOLUTE OUTRAGE at this commment...
oh look, hillary’s numbers must be tanking, Bill creeped out from underneath a rock to utter a classic Clinton whopper.
Im mad enough to mispell Republican
Thanks for the tip. I am fairly convinced that Hillary’s fifteen minutes is at 22 and counting. I’ll check out the link. I went to a fairly liberal site the other day, and saw the same thing. She’s not selling...
I agree Woofie. Clinton stepped in it with this comment.
There is a clear black and a white in this stuff...a voter can either blast GWs foreign policy and go back to Madelyn Albright’s soft power or not...There is no in between (where the Clintons love to hide)
Did anyone hear the Toon's comment on childhood AIDS in Africa? He said the medicines are currently available to cure 95% of childhood AIDS. Even Charlie Roses said, "Really?" But, of course, there was no follow up.
I went over there, and it was rather unmerciful. Of course there were the occassional “Everyone should think for themselves and quit spouting Rush Limbaugh without thinking” posts. Those were rather comical.
The luster has come off the road apple.
I agree. And I would say that I do like some of what Bush has done, but a diplomat connecting with Europe and more importantly Russia, he hasn’t been. I am also gravely disappointed with his lack of perception at what China is up to.
Clinton would undoubtedly be worse.
Read the book 'Compromised' by Terry Reed, it will shed some light on this Bush/Clinton tag team dynasty.
diplomats are a dime a dozen ,we got one running New Mexico (Bill Richardson)... I hear Cindy Sheehan likes his plans for Iraq
Anyway Europe will always be foaming at the mouth
Did you read the first line?
"Former President Bill Clinton said "
Why would anyone here believe anything that Bill Clinton says?!
Why are people attacking GHW Bush based on Bill Clinton's statement?!
Show me a quote where GHW Bush said he will go abroad with Bill under Hillary's presidency, "to repair the image of the US"!
All -- stop and think!!!
You do realize that GHW Bush is friends with Bill, don’t you?
" I leave our tv tuned to cnn all day. If the NEGATIVE remarks do not stop toward Hillary Clinton msnbc will need to be my choice. Why do ALL you select her as your choice to hurt. Are you opposed to females'in office???? do we females'have to unite & wage war against CNN??? Delve into Obama's negative back ground & report on his for a CHANGE of scenery & TOPIC."
“You do realize that GHW Bush is friends with Bill, donât you?”
Don’t be silly, No he isn’t.
At the request of GW Bush, GHW and Bill Clinton did some ads and traveled to show bi-partisan, united support to the tsunami victims and raise funds. That was all.
GHW had made statements to the effect that he was very upset because of the way the Dems have been bashing his son.
And we have no one to blame but ourselves.
I certainly dont think GHW Bush had anything to do with this comment but I do want him to blast Clinton out of the room for saying it
When I visited Dachau I wondered how people could do what was done. As I watch today’s democrats I have the answer. The hatred and conceit are the beginnings, and they have that. They need the power; that’s the next setp.
Images can also be deceiving.
What did you want Bush to do, act as if Clinton had leprosy?
As I said, this was all for public consumption to show b-partisanship.
How much time do you think GHW Bush spent with Bill Clinton since they got back from the fundraising trips?
Unfortunately for Bill and his sex party world travel plans, there won’t be a President Hillary because of the the damage done to the Clinton’s reputation by himself in regards to the historical stain of being impeached for lying under oath in a court of law.
And hasn't G.W. already made inroads into repairing relationships, e.g. France ???
Okay fine, but let's try and refrain from using Dachau or perhaps Jasenovac as a basis for an argument. Thanks.;-)
I'm a bit biased, I like "No Mas!" a little better...
can’t both of these a-holes just go away!!!!!
