Dec 5, 18, 09:07 AM #20I didn't realize that President Bush is only the 32nd person to have lain in state at the Capitol Rotunda. I had kind of just assumed that all deceased Presidents would have been lain in state.
There have also been 4 individuals to have lain in honor in the Capitol Rotunda.

Dec 5, 18, 09:12 AM #21FYI, they are preparing to take the President's casket from the US Capitol to the National Cathedral right now. There is televised coverage on most of the major television networks.
Dec 5, 18, 09:17 AM #22The video of Senator Dole being wheeled up to the casket, being helped to his feet to salute was some powerful stuff.
41 sure seemed like a remarkable man. We, as a Country, lost a great one.

If you get a chance, check out Dana Carvey's interview with Conan this past week. I think it was Conan. He really describes the unique relationship he and Bush formed after the SNL skits. Amazing how George 41 took it as simple comedy.

Dec 5, 18, 10:20 AM #28I believe I just saw President George W. Bush pull a challenge coin out of his pocket as he walked down the aisle of the National Cathedral and hand it to Michelle Obama as shook hands with all of the other Presidents and First Ladies.
