DALLAS-When you think of the ultimate example of leadership in the United States, you might think Oval Office, right?

After all, being leader of the free world is no easy job.

On Thursday, former presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush spoke to the inaugural class of the Presidential Leadership Program, a program created by both presidents to start an open dialogue among leaders in different sectors.

"I think the most important point for the scholars is find out what you don’t know and find people who do,” said former president George W. Bush.

The class of 60 scholars has traveled between the presidential centers of George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush and Lyndon B. Johnson to learn key strategies from former presidents and their top officials.

Okay, so we've seen Clinton and Bush speak to graduating classes individually, but together on one stage? Yeah, talk about a special night! Not to mention a sit down with Mark Cuban.

"I'm here to say that Texas is the most amazing state when it comes to creating new companies," said Cuban.

So you might ask yourself, who are these scholars? Well, they're professionals in the private and non- profit sectors, working to make a difference.

The program runs for six months and applications for the second class of the Presidential Leadership Scholars is now open.

Hey, something tells us this class is in pretty good hands.
