Former presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton led a conversation on leadership today, as part of a graduation ceremony for 60 members of the Presidential Leadership Scholars program.
Bush said Bill Clinton was “humble in victory” in 1992 election against George H. W. Bush, “unlike other people.”
The event took place at the George W. Bush Presidential Center in Dallas and will be moderated by financier and philanthropist David Rubenstein, according to a statement from the George W. Bush Institute.
Bush and Clinton launched the leadership initiative in 2014 and appeared at the graduation ceremony for the 2016 graduating class last year in Little Rock, Ark.
The two presidents share a close relationship and have worked together in several humanitarian efforts in recent years.

Scholars in the selective leadership-focused program have access to resources at the presidential centers of Bush, Clinton, George H.W. Bush and Lyndon B. Johnson, in order to create an “opportunity to instill in scholars a brand of principled leadership that transcends diverse backgrounds.”
