From Yahoo News:
Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Famer Elton John once called President George W. Bush “the worst thing that ever happened to America.” But in an interview with ABC News/Yahoo! Power Players series, Sir Elton offers a different description of Bush: The U.S. President who has done most to fight AIDS.
Asked directly what President has done more than any other to combat AIDS, John answered without hesitation: “George Bush.”
“One of the old adages in life is never judge someone until you meet them,” John said. “I didn’t like his policies but I have to say when I met him, I found him charming, I found him well informed and I found him determined to do something about the AIDS situation so I changed my opinion of him. And his wife was astonishingly kind to us well. So it was — I learned a lesson.”
