Of the latest participants, the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has “broken the ice” into politics. Former President George W. Bush intended to “simply write a check,” but his wife Laura decided it were better for him to be doused in ice water.

In a statement on Facebook, Bush said, “Thanks to Jenna Bush Hager, Rory McIlroy, Woody Johnson, and Coach Jim Harbaugh for the#IceBucketChallenge — and to Laura W. Bush for the check. Next up: President Bill Clinton. Help#StrikeOutALS at www.alsa.org.

In a political atmosphere of perpetual finger pointing, it is refreshing to see some sort of bi-partisanship for such a deserving cause. President Bush concludes the video saying, “Now it’s my privilege to challenge my friend Bill Clinton.” Watch the video below.
