So this picture of George W. Bush and Bono may be one of the greatest pictures I’ve seen. Like me, I bet when most see it they are taken aback, do a double take and ask, “Is this photoshopped?” Your fingers want to type out “caption this…” and see what craziness follows. But then, when your brain re-orients itself and you pick your jaw up off the ground, you take a moment to read the post underneath written by “W” himself (it’s from his Instagram).
“Bono is the real deal. He has a huge heart and a selfless soul, not to mention a decent voice. @laurawbush and I are grateful he came to the ranch to talk about the work of @thebushcenter, @onecampaign, @PEPFAR, and our shared commitment to saving lives in Africa”
So how did an American, conservative (actually moderate in today’s political environment), ex-president and an Irish Rock Icon/Political Activist become partners, advocates and dare-I-say friends? And get this, for the better part of 10 years? Common purpose.
