The first thing that George W. Bush did to start his transition was 
visit Bill Clinton. As a courtesy, Clinton invited him to spend the 
night in the Lincoln bedroom.

As Bush was about to fall asleep, he sensed a presence. He opened his 
eyes to see the spirit of George Washington at the foot of his bed. 
Astonished, Bush decided to ask the first president for advice.

"President Washington," he asked, "what is the best thing I can do 
for America when I become president?"

Washington answered, "Be as honest and forthright as I was." Then the 
spirit vanished.

Bush thought deeply on this, and as he did, he gently drifted off to sleep.

A few hours later, a gentle rustling next to the bed awakened him. He 
woke up to see the ghost of Thomas Jefferson standing beside the bed.

Realizing that he had the opportunity to call on a great president 
who came to office in difficult circumstances much like his own, Bush 
asked Jefferson, "What is the best thing I can do for America when I 
become president?"

Jefferson looked him straight in the eye and answered, "Lower taxes 
and reduce the size of the government as I did." With these words, 
Jefferson disappeared.

Inspired and heartened, Bush fell into a deep, restful sleep.

Just before dawn, he woke up once again, and once again, he felt a 
spirit in the room. Looking around, he saw the tall, gangly form of 
Abraham Lincoln sitting in a bedside chair.

Bush asked Lincoln the same question he asked of the other two great 

Lincoln listened to the question, but he did not answer immediately. 
Instead, he looked quietly at Bush, nodding gently. Finally, he 
cleared his throat and spoke, "Go to the theater!"
