One Bed, Two Presidents

What happens when you put two former US Presidents in an airplane with only one bed? Well, according to CNN, this:

Clinton allowed his predecessor, (...) Bush, to sleep on the plane's only bed while he stretched out on the floor.


Bush, 80, said Clinton offered ahead of time to give the older former president the bedroom so he could lie flat and avoid paining his body. Clinton, 58, decided to play cards in the other room that night.

The next morning, Bush said he peeked in and saw Clinton sound asleep on the plane's floor.

"That was a very courteous thing, very thoughtful, and that meant a great deal to me," Bush said.

Makes sense to me. After all, Clinton did owe Bush sr. for taking away the presidency from him back in 1992. I guess one good night of sleep means they're even now.
