President Bill Clinton, 'All Together Now: A Celebration of Service'For the first time since President Barack Obama's inauguration, the four surviving Presidents came together to honor former President George H.W. Bush for his leadership. NBC aired the proceedings in the special 'All Together Now: A Celebration of Service' (Mon., 8PM ET on NBC).

Clinton spoke of the transformation of his relationship with the senior Bush from political rival in the 1992 Presidential campaign, which he described as painful in some ways, to friend. And he had only one man to thank for bringing the two of them together: Clinton's successor in the White House.

"George W. Bush did me one of the great favors of my life," Clinton said. "He asked me not once, but twice, to work with his father to help people in need."

The two traveled together and changed lives together, and both of them added these powerful humanitarian missions to their legacies. More significantly, they showed that political rivals can work together and they can even become dear friends.
