George Bush Challenges Bill Clinton To Ice Bucket Challenge
DAVID GREENE, HOST:
Good morning. I'm David Greene. Former president George W. Bush has responded to the Ice Bucket Challenge.
(SOUNDBITE OF TV SHOW, "TODAY SHOW")
PRESIDENT GEORGE W. BUSH: I do not think it's presidential for me to be splashed with ice water. So I'm simply going to write you a check.
GREENE: But, then former first lady Laura Bush raised a bucket.
BUSH: (Water splashing) Ow.
GREENE: Of course, then he had to mark someone else for dousing. President Obama already declined the challenge so President Bush picked Bill Clinton.
