Approved For Release 2002/05/ 1DA?' aoo 2-5 9SA ,42 9&0 31 March 76 UIj Here's a copy of the note I'll mail George Bush tomorrow. We had 425 at the luncheon, and your boss was a real winner. I had seen him several times on TV but still had no appreciation of how effective he is be- fore a live audience. He's as good as any I've ever seen and I've seen a lot in 35 years around this town. If he were a Democrat, I'd advise him to quit that job out there and run for President. He obviously has the brains, the toughness, the honesty, and the appeal to get most any job. And Lord knows we need a few like him. Thanks ever so much for nailing him down for us. My only problem now is that I don't know how to follow his act at out October meeting. obviously, we've got to shift the format. Can't just put another speaker up there.
