George Bush, in an interview with RAI prior to his visit to Europe (a visit that will have his staff wondering why everyone is ignoring him and watching some strange sport on TV) --
Now the debate begins as to who could be the best President. And I'm in an interesting position -- I ran hard for presidency twice; I campaigned hard in the off years, and now I'll be passing the mantle on to Senator McCain, particularly at the convention when he becomes the official nominee of our party. Obviously he's going to be the nominee, but there's a moment at the convention where it's -- "here he is."
Bring it on.
