Obama Meets the Presidents

From the Washington Post:

For the first time in a generation, the former and current U.S. presidents gathered for a historic meeting today at the White House to reminisce and offer some advice to the building's future occupant, President-elect Barack Obama.

President Bush welcomed Obama, Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter and his father, George H.W. Bush, in the Oval Office, before proceeding to a private hour-long lunch.

"I want to thank the president-elect for joining the ex-presidents for lunch," Bush said.

"One message that I have and I think we all share is that we want you to succeed," Bush continued. "Whether we're Democrat or Republican, we all care deeply about this country. . . . All of us who have served in this office understand that the office transcends the individual."

Obama thanked Bush for hosting the "extraordinary gathering."
