Laramie, Wy – Former President George Bush says he's had a marvelous public life that has mixed some good with the bad. Bush participated in a public conversation with former Senator Alan Simpson at the University of Wyoming. Bush notes that despite a tough campaign where he lost to former President Bill Clinton he has enjoyed working with Clinton on Tsunami relief and now helping hurricane victims. Bush says the key to getting through tough political times is to have a sense of humor. The event marked the end of U-W's major fundraising campaign that raised over 200 million dollars.
