Obama taps former Presidents Clinton and Bush for Haiti relief

• McClatchy News
President Barack Obama tapped former presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton on Saturday to head a major fundraising effort to underwrite Haiti's long-term recovery, even as concerns grew about delivering life-saving aid to earthquake victims.

"Just send your cash," Bush said, discouraging Americans from contributing blankets, water or similar items. The former president, making his first visit to the White House since leaving office a year ago, appeared with Clinton and Obama in the Rose Garden.
