Presidents Bush, Clinton Visit Devastated Haiti

Former Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton clasped hands with residents of one of Haiti's massive tent cities Monday on a tour of its quake-devastated capital — a visit intended to remind donors of the immense needs facing the recovery effort. The two former leaders, who were tapped by President Barack Obama to spearhead U.S. fundraising for the crisis, made their first joint visit as part of the mission to raise aid and investment for the impoverished Caribbean nation. At a news conference with President Rene Preval on the grounds of the collapsed national palace, Bush said he was struck by the devastation caused by the Jan. 12 earthquake. "It's one thing to see it on TV, it's another to see it firsthand," said Bush, who was making his first visit to Haiti. "Hopefully our visit will remind people that Haiti needs help.";_ylt=AoYBj5TNZgyO426VK82K2gxvaA8F;_ylu=X3oDMTJrcm1hMDBmBGFzc2V0A2FwLzIwMTAwMzIyL2NiX2hhaXRpX2VhcnRocXVha2UEY3BvcwMyBHBvcwM1BHNlYwN5bl90b3Bfc3RvcnkEc2xrA3ByZXNpZGVudHNidQ--
