Elton John says George W. Bush has done more than any other U.S. President to fight AIDS

From Yahoo:

Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Famer Elton John once called President George W. Bush “the worst thing that ever happened to America.” But in an interview with ABC News/Yahoo! Power Players series, Sir Elton offers a different description of Bush: The U.S. President who has done most to fight AIDS.

Asked directly what President has done more than any other to combat AIDS, John answered without hesitation: “George Bush.”

Elton John, who has been a leading activist on AIDS issues since the 1980s, gives President Bush credit for launching the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) a $15 billion program Bush signed into law in 2004 to provide treatment and prevention for millions of HIV-infected people in Africa.
