Bush's Rehabilitation Tour

Has former president Bush already grown restless? Starting next month, he will begin an international speaking tour, making ten speeches over the next year across the U.S., Canada, Europe and Asia. The tour is expected to gross him hundreds of thousands of dollars, a modest sum compared to the almost $10 million figure that former president Clinton made in 2006 alone. The tour is aimed at rehabilitating his image, though he seems to not have learned why it was so damaged in the first place: The press will be barred from attending his first speech, slated for March 17 in Calgary Canada, where he will speak to a business audience on his years in office and 21st-century challenges.
