GEORGE BUSH: Well, big Jeb, you know, he's got a decision to make. And if I could make it for him, it'd be, "run," but I can't. And I don't know what he's going to do. He'd be a great candidate and a great president.
On plans for a third trip to Africa this summer:
GEORGE BUSH: I think it's important to set priorities in life. I always said that one of the principles that was important to me was human life. We went to Africa and saw people dying, needlessly dying. And there's nothing more important, I think, and Laura thinks as well, to help somebody live.
And so during my presidency I convinced Congress to spend taxpayers' money to save lives not only from HIV but as well from malaria. And it worked. And we want to continue that type of work with cervical cancer.
Finally, on his post-presidential hobby of painting:
LAURA BUSH: Who would have thunk it? George was looking for a pastime, actually, when he gave up smoking cigars. So he read Churchill's book, "Painting As a Pastime" and he's actually very good. He's a very good painter.
GEORGE BUSH: I relax. I see colors differently. I am, I guess, tapping a part of the brain that, you know, certainly never used when I was a teenager. And I get the satisfaction out of completing a project. And I paint people's pets. And I love to give them their pet as a gift.
And I readily concede the signature is more valuable than the painting.
