The outgoing president has thanked all those who has been backing him and his party. “The time has come for a new president. I do hope that the discords of the latest election campaign will be forgotten,” Mr. Clinton has said. He has summed up his work in office saying he is proud of what he has done during those 8 years. After the radio address and before George W. Bush’s inauguration ceremony, the Clintons received the Bushes in the White House’s Blue Room over a traditional cup of coffee.
