BEVERLY HILLS - God bless America, and how's everybody?

Cinco de Mayo will be celebrated next weekend by an estimated 80 million people in Mexico and the U.S. It's quite a tradition. Cinco de Mayo celebrates Mexi-co's stunning and surprising victory over sobriety over 150 years ago.

George W. Bush opened his presidential library in Dallas on the same day as the NFL player draft. It was inspiring for college players to see that no matter how many concussions they get, they can still grow up to be president.

Bill Clinton spoke at the Bush Library opening. He joked that he's so close to the Bushes he's become the black sheep son of the family. It wasn't enough for Clinton to be the first black U.S. president, now he has to be the first black in the Bush family.

President Obama said Thursday that on his first day as president he found a letter to him from George W. Bush on the Oval Office desk. It was helpful. It was a recommendation that he not quit drinking and he start brewing beer in the White House as soon as possible.

President Obama saluted George W. Bush for his efforts on immigration reform and urged Congress to pass it. It got a huge round of applause. Half of the 10,000 people in the crowd were only there because they didn't have the papers to satisfy the Arizona police.

The Bush Library opening in Dallas ended with a U.S. military choir singing the Battle Hymn of the Republic. It got two seconds of applause. The Yankee victory song was a sharp reminder to the Texans in the audience that the Bushes are really from Connecticut.
