Poppy and the Clenis

No, it's not the name of a 70s era TV show about a crime fighting truck driver and his pet python. It's an actual surprising move by Bush:

WASHINGTON - President Bush (news - web sites) has tapped former Presidents Clinton and Bush to lead a nationwide charitable fund-raising effort for victims of the Asian tsunamis, the White House announced Monday.

The two men will lead an effort "to encourage the American people and American businesses to support, through private contributions, non-governmental and international organizations" relief and reconstruction to areas devastated by the tsunamis, White House press secretary Scott McClellan said.
