Tear-Filled Tribute: Dana Perino Interviews Former Boss, President George W. Bush
An emotional Dana Perino talked to her co-hosts of The Five today, reacting to Thursday's dedication of the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum in Dallas, Texas on the campus of Southern Methodist University. Perino, the former press secretary of the 43rd president, said that she started crying when her former boss began speaking ... and didn't stop until the ceremony ended. We should revise that to say, she didn't stop until 'The Five' ended!
"I loved today; I loved everything about it," she gushed. "I wish so much that my friends at 'The Five' could have been there with me."
Perino spoke of the charged atmosphere with all five living presidents in attendance, adding that when (former President George H.W. Bush) '41 spoke and stood, just for a moment, "there wasn't a dry eye in Dallas."
She also told her (enthusiastic) desk-mate Eric Bolling that he especially would have loved the dedication.
Dana couldn't hold back the tears as she watched video of a specific part of the interview in which she and the former commander in chief share an embrace.
