For the first time since his presidency ended, former President George W. Bush will appear on all five Sunday morning news shows — yet the discussion will only revolve around Haiti relief efforts.

Bush, who has largely stayed out of the limelight since leaving the White House about a year ago, taped eight-minute segments on Haiti with former President Bill Clinton Saturday morning. The segments will air Sunday morning.

Bush and Clinton will do a “Full Ginsburg,” the act of appearing on all Sunday morning news shows on the same day: Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace, ABC’s This Week with Jake Tapper, CBS’s Face the Nation with Bob Schieffer, CNN’s State of the Union with John King and NBC’s Meet the Press with David Gregory.

The taping of the segments in the White House Map Room on Saturday came after an Oval Office meeting with President Obama, and a Rose Garden press conference with all three presidents. The Daily Caller reported Saturday that Bush, back at the White House, appeared nostalgic while looking around the Rose Garden at journalists he recognized and giving slight nods.
