I can only think of Bacon:

My in-laws met Thomas Hulce when they were filming "Dominic and Eugene" here and actually let them use their garage for filming.

Thomas Hulce was in "Animal House" with Bacon.

I like this one better than my previous one:

4 to Bacon: Jon Keeyes (1) performed my wedding ceremony and directed Arnold Vosloo (2) in Living & Dying; Arnold Vosloo was in Blood Diamond with Djimon Hounsou (3), who was in Beauty Shop with KB (4).

But it's still only 4.

I have no idea how I would get to Bush or Bill Gates, I might have to ask my brother for help with those two... I can get to Kevin Bacon in 4, though.

My brother (1), went to high school with Chris O'Donnell (2) who was in "Batman Forever" with Tommy Lee Jones (3), who was in "JFK" with Kevin Bacon (4).

ETA: With a little stretch, I can get it down to three...

My friend's mother (1) who I am also pretty much friends with used to run the Chicago LOTR fan club and has met Sean Astin (2) numerous times (ie he knows who she is; she also once planted a garden with him as part of a group charity project) Sean Astin was in "White Water Summer" with Kevin Bacon (3).

A family friend (1) is in the current West End production of The Sound of Music produced by Andrew Lloyd Webber (2) whose 2004 film version of Phantom of the Opera featured Emmy Rossum (3) who was in the 2003 film Mystic River with Kevin Bacon (4).

A friend (1) who is an American living in London is involved with an organisation called Democrats Abroad UK and has met Al Gore (2), who has (obviously) met Bush (3).

Ma (1) worked for 1-Stop Building Supply (a construction supply company) (2) who sold supplies to the construction workers of the Amistad sets (3), a movie Morgan Freeman starred in (4); he also acted in Bonfire of the Vanities with Tom Hanks (5), who starred in Apollo 13 with Kevin Bacon (6).

I have a shorter version: Ma (1) goes to St. John's* in Newport, where William Hale (2) directed scenes from The Demon Murder Case, which starred Kevin Bacon(3). (And for another odd reason, Trisha Miller. However, I was about 12 when this was made, so it musta been another Trish. DANG! SO CLOSE!!)

-OR-

Ma (1) goes to St. John's in Newport, where Stephen Speilberg (2) filmed an inside** scene from Amistad with Matthew McConaughey(3), who acted alongside Morgan Freeman (4) who also acted in Bonfire of the Vanities with Tom Hanks (5), who starred in Apollo 13 with Kevin Bacon (6).

*St. John's has also been used as the church for Me, Myself and Irene.
**The picture is one I took. Unlike the movie, there is no giant-assed cross in the middle of the nave.

My brother-in-law works with a guy who says he's cousin to snopes. So that's what, three degrees of separation from greatness? [Wink]

ETA: It's not Bill Gates, Bush or Kevin Bacon, but who needs them?
