Bi­den on Bush

Las Vegas Review-Journal (Sunday) - - FROM THE COVER -

At the start of his speech, for­mer Vice Pres­i­dent Joe Bi­den paid trib­ute to for­mer Pres­i­dent Ge­orge H.W. Bush, who died Fri­day at age 94. As a se­na­tor, Bi­den said he worked with eight pres­i­dents in his time, but none had “more class or greater sense of de­cency” than Bush.

Bi­den spoke about a trip to Houston af­ter his son’s death. Bush had been out of a stint in a hos­pi­tal him­self for less than a day, but in­sisted on go­ing to Bi­den’s ho­tel room to wel­come him to Houston and give him his con­do­lence’s on the loss of his son.

“That’s the kind of man he was, a man of enor­mous in­tegrity and never, never, never made it about him. It was al­ways about some­body else,” Bi­den said.
