I watched the show. Bush is funny, and matched Leno, joke for joke. It was a good segment. The audience liked Bush, as well.

just watched the show on hulu. It was good to see Leno treat the Bushs with obvious respect. Maybe some day some class will be restored to the WH with a dignified couple like Pres and Laura Bush

I really enjoyed it... I missed the outtakes at the end because I was on the phone and my recorder cut off right at the half hour point.

BTW I found it interesting that Leno went to Dallas to a party at the Bush home for Wounded Warriors... sounded like his wife is working with Laura helping the women in Afghanistan - Mrs. Leno has been involved in trying to help them even before the war.

The Lenos have been VERY heavily involved in Wounded Warriors since 2005. Check out Comics for Courage for details.

So much more class, character, and personality than the current occupants...
