When he was in the White House, George W. Bush and rock star Bono worked together to eradicate AIDS in Africa -- to the point that the U2 leader became the president's buddy, Bush tells Fox News.
"He was skeptical of me, and frankly I was skeptical of him," Bush said. "And we became pals because we shared a common desire to help others on the continent of Africa.
"Bono's the real deal," Bush added in an interview with his former press secretary Dana Perino.
Assessing his presidency, Bush said, "I know I gave it my all. I know I didn't sell my soul. I know we dealt with some pretty tough problems. . . . I know our White House was a joyful place."
