'Dear Bill': Clinton reads heartfelt letter from President George H.W. Bush
By Halimah Abdullah

"On Jan. 20, 1993, as newly inaugurated President Bill Clinton read outgoing President H.W. Bush's words — left for him inside a desk in the Oval Office — the burgeoning connection between the once-political rivals became inked on stationery beneath an embossed presidential seal."
"I never felt the loneliness some presidents have described. There will be very tough times, made even more difficult by criticism you may not think is fair. I’m not a very good one to give advice, but just don’t let the critics discourage you or push you off course."
"You will be our president when you read this note. I wish you well. I wish your family well."
"Your success now is our country’s success. I am rooting hard for you."

Presidents Clinton and Bush despite their political differences have always for the most part enjoyed a good, close relationship. Examples of their camaraderie is plain to see. They often got together and I'm sure President Clinton is missing President H.W. Bush. That was a very nice letter Bush wrote to Clinton.
