George W. Bush surprises 6-year-old presidential expert Macey Hensley on 'Ellen'

Macey Hensley knows her presidents. From George Washington to Barack Obama, she can name them all and even offer up a little trivia about each of them.

But now, thanks to Ellen DeGeneres, the 6-year-old also knows a couple of presidents personally.

In February, Ellen introduced her to President Obama. And on Monday's show, the host shared a clip of Macey's recent meeting with George W. Bush.

Macey met the former president at his library in Dallas, and she wasn't alone.

Her George W. Bush ventriloquist doll came along for the ride, and she even offered Laura Bush the opportunity to put a few words in his mouth.

"I've been trying to do this forever!" the former first lady said as she grabbed the doll.

After appreciating Macey's hobby, the real George W. introduced her to his hobby — painting.

The two worked together on a portrait of Ellen, which he dubbed "a winner!"

Speaking of winning, Macey wants to run for president in 2048, and she delivered a campaign speech while she was at the library.

"Ok, just ... teachers get paid more," she said.

She might just have what it takes!
