Ex-presidents celebrate miracle at Tulane Bush, Clinton give commencement speech at school devastated by Katrina NEW ORLEANS - Former Presidents Bush and Clinton helped Tulane University celebrate its miracle commencement Saturday, nine months after Hurricane Katrina put two-thirds of campus under water and scattered students to more than 600 schools nationwide. This commencement will no doubt go down as one of the most memorable and cherished events in the history of our great university, Tulane president Scott S. Cowen said. Degrees were awarded to nearly 2,200 graduates and honorary degrees were presented to Bush, Clinton and several others In place of an invocation, jazz historian Michael White played Just a Closer Walk With Thee. The song was played in the tradition of a jazz funeral, slow and mournful at first, fast an upbeat to represent rebirth at the end. Lifes like that, Clinton said. Its always about new beginnings. I wish you many. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/12774594/ I have to admit.....these guys have been great together. Warms the cockles of my heart .....But, why them? It's great to see, but why?
