Will there ever be another VP who moves into the Presidency? I wanted to vote for Bush in 88, but never got my absentee ballot. Though I did not vote for him in his reelection bid, I really think he did well after the invasion of Kuwait. And his post-presidency fundraising efforts (with former rival Clinton) should be lauded.

A good man and an underrated President. Rest in peace, sir. You will be missed.

Like Jimmy Carter and his son, he was a man who achieved so much more after his time in office.

Putting aside all the politics and pageantry, Former Pres. George W. Bush is a son who lost both parents in the same year. Watching him holding back tears giving his dad's eulogy was heartbreaking.

Agree. 

Many emotional moments in the coverage, from Bob Dole's salute yesterday to pretty much all of the ceremony today.

My Dad died in October of 2017 and my Mom died the day after her birthday in March this year so his words cut extra deep for me. Especially the part about his dad wanting to hold his mom's hand again.

A friend attended the service. Here is the card that was given out:

FRONT

BACK

From accounts it seems he was a good person before all else. Opportunities he let pass to crush or destroy another politician or to steal the thunder of others speaks of his decency.
