Bush, Clinton To Talk, Charge Money
As part of MSG Entertainment's "Minds That Move The World" speakers series, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush have agreed to hold what is portrayed as a debate on February 25 at Madison Square Garden. The topic will be whether chocolate ice cream is yummier than vanilla. Ha ha, no, they'll discuss "topics ranging from the economy, to foreign policy, to the current administration," says an MSG spokesperson.
Tickets are $60-$1,250. If it's anything like the chatfest the two Presidents held in Toronto in May ("as they settled into overstuffed chairs, Mr. Bush and Mr. Clinton became something of an ex-presidents' support group, avoiding direct critiques of each other"), a lot of people will be asking for their money back. (The top ticket price payers get pictures with the Presidents and something to drink.) Bush and Clinton were paid over $150,000 apiece for the Toronto appearance; their price for this event is not revealed.
