This CNN link has a photo of the Presidents together today.

5 presidents on hand for Bush Center dedication - CNN.com

I was very pleased to see that Presdent Bush the Elder was able to attend his son's Presidential Library opening. Indeed, I was glad to see him standing and looking well.

Oh, lookie. Someone doesn't understand that they are paid for by private funds.

These would be the same people who pay tax to educate your kids.

If your kids are dropping out, blame yourself.

Leave it to CNN to post a 4 year old picture.

I haven't seen a picture of today. I'm sure I will, or on TV. I doubt The Elder will be standing, though.

Blast, I didn't see the date! I assumed it was from today.

Well, I agree then, I doubt Mr. Bush the Elder will be standing up (since last I heard he was in a wheelchair; I had hoped he had made a remarkable recovery).

It's currently live on TV and the Bush elder is in a wheelchair. He is looking very feeble.

Dignitaries from all over the world are at the ceremonies. It's a good watch if you can

That is a gallery of pictures of former presidents together. Read the captions that go with the pictures. You'll find them informative.

You only had to look on CNN's homepage to see the picture from today prominently displayed: CNN.com - Breaking News, U.S., World, Weather, Entertainment & Video News

There are 21 Presidential Libraries, seems a few have done that.

Ah, yes. I just saw him sitting next to W, singing America, the Beautiful.

I have a feeling I'm going to cry throughout this. What a wonderful sight!

I wager a dollar or two that Obama had rather be ANYWHERE in the world instead of Dallas.
My thoughts exactly...

What did The Elder say to W after he finished speaking? It made W laugh out loud.

Oh, and The Elder is standing.

Where's the Kleenex!
