In the realm of great presidential debates, where every American executive is stacked up against every other on some front, there's now at least one spot where George W. Bush has exceeded Barack Obama: Ability to be doused in ice water.
Laura Bush, the former first lady, poured the water over her husband's head. And, as the challenge goes, Bush passed the ice baton to Bill Clinton.
Bush isn't by any means the first politician (or former politician) to be submerged in ice water for charity. But so far at least, Obama has said that he won't enter the fray, outside of writing a check for the ALS charity. That's despite challenges coming his way from Ethel Kennedy,LeBron James, and, uh, Justin Bieber.
