From what I have seen, Bush will not attend tonight's ceremonial events, but will speak on Tuesday. Sources say his actions in not attending tonight are due to the pothumously released remarks whereby President Ford criticized the Iraq war situation. Personally I feel that a sitting president should have more dignity and integrity than that. It doesn't say much for a person if they always snub someone who has made constructively critical remarks about them. It's a sign of cowardice in my opinion. I think Bush should have attended tonight. Especially since he is in the country and not away on some pressing official business. So I wanted to know other's thoughts on the matter.
