CNN has a few videos of the talk.

Paulson, probably trying to dispel rumours of a rift between the two during the stressful period, talked for a few solid minutes about how great George Bush was to him during everything.

It’s sweet of him to say, but also a little creepy given the strange mental image that comes to mind.
