. COUNTRIES: HAITI : DISASTERS: EARTHQUAKES: Obama enlists Bush, Clinton to Help Haiti Obama enlists Bush, Clinton to Help Haiti Steve Holland WASHINGTON Thu Jan 14, 2010 3:23pm EST Reuters <http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE60D5JO20100114?type=politicsNews>WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama pledged $100 million for Haiti quake relief on Thursday and enlisted two former U.S. presidents to help raise more, vowing to the Haitian people: "You will not be forsaken."
Barack ObamaDetermined to stay on top of the rapidly unfolding humanitarian crisis in the quake zone, Obama told his top aides that responding to the tragedy should be their top priority.
Obama, facing his biggest test of international relief since taking office a year ago, promised an initial U.S. contribution of $100 million and said he had directed his administration to launch "a swift, coordinated and aggressive effort to save lives and support recovery in Haiti."
Former President Bill Clinton, a Democrat who is already a United Nations special envoy for Haiti, and former President George W. Bush, the Republican who preceded Obama in the White House, agreed to a request from Obama to help the quake relief effort. Obama talked by telephone with Bush on Wednesday night about helping out.
"Both of them have agreed to take part in this," said White House spokesman Robert Gibbs, promising more details in the next few days.
The effort will be similar to that performed by Clinton and Bush's father, former President George H.W. Bush, when they led a huge international relief effort to help the recovery from the 2004 tsunami that swept South Asia and killed 226,000 in 13 countries.
George W. Bush has kept a relatively low profile since leaving the White House a year ago, working on a book about his time in office and developing his presidential library in Dallas.
His former press secretary, Dana Perino, said she believed Bush and Clinton "will pour their hearts into this mission."
