In the tradition of his predecessors, George W. Bush has proudly affirmed he’ll take overseas money for his Presidential Library, and makes no promises he’ll disclose any of it. Bush spoke to a news conference last week.

Q Any restrictions on who can give? Will you take foreign money for this?

THE PRESIDENT: Yes, I’ll probably take some foreign money, but don’t know yet, Ken. We just haven’t — we just announced the deal and I, frankly, have been focused elsewhere, like on gasoline prices and, you know, my trip to Africa, and haven’t seen the fundraising strategy yet. So the answer to your question, really, I can’t answer your question well.

Q Where does the people’s right to know this fit into all that?

THE PRESIDENT: We’re weighing, taking a look, taking consideration, giving it a serious consideration. Nice try, though.
