Barbara and I wish we could have joined the U.S. delegation honoring President Mandela today. He, and his countrymen, are in our prayers.

Former President George H.W. Bush joined Twitter today, and used his first, and only, tweet to honor Nelson Mandela. Former President Bush did not attend Nelson Mandela’s memorial service today, however all other living Presidents did. The former President has only sent out that one tweet, but already has over 35,000 followers. The White House welcomed former President George H.W. Bush to Twitter today, and asked if we would now be seeing #SocksoftheDay, due to the former President’s colorful sock interests.
Welcome to Twitter, @GeorgeHWBush! Can we expect #SocksOfTheDay? pic.twitter.com/yZtsrI3b4r
