Fishbowl has the blow by blow, which includes a blushing Chuck Todd and a very dapper Jake Tapper.

Shout outs to Jake Tapper, Mike Allen, Ken Herman, Ann Compton.

“We have been through a lot together.”

“I see some new faces, which goes to show there’s some turnover in this business.”

“Through it all, I have respected you. Sometimes didn’t like the stories you wrote or reported on. Sometimes you misundestimated me, but always a relationship that I thought was professional. And I appreciate it. I do appreciate working with you.”

(Bush seems perpetually on the verge of tears, it seems)

To CNN’s Suzanne Malveaux: “I finally got your name right after all these years.” (Bush usually calls her Suz-ANNE instead of Suz-awwn).

Was Chucky T blushing as he asked his question?

Bush to Tapper: “What have you been doing since 2000?” Tapper: “Working my way to this job.”
