Using former presidents

How would you use President Bush?

Hillary says she appreciated Bush using her husband and Bush I in the fundraising efforts after Katrina. When they are all together, representing our country, that sends a strong message, but how to use George W. "will take some careful thought on my part," she says. (Didn't she just compliment him on some policy initiative earlier in this debate?)

A "council" of presidents is a good idea, Obama says, and adds that he would be more likely to seek counsel from Bush I than Bush II, giving the exit from the Cold War as an example of why. I missed the rest because my three-year-old is whining about Chap-Stick.
