Former President George W. Bush and former First Lady Laura Bush are back in the White House today for the unveiling of their portraits. Joining them are former President George H.W. Bush and Barbara Bush. It is a rare event to have three Presidents at the White House.
There is a packed house in the East Room and we are following along with Twitter for first-hand accounts of all the action and ceremony. Much love was shown for former President George H.W. Bush and his wife, Barbara Bush.
President Bush shows his grace and class, as always.

Reports from the scene aren’t so snarly, as even reporters appreciate the ceremony and the history.
Biden yuks it up.
