George H.W. Bush state funeral: Former president honored



George H.W. Bush was heralded Wednesday as “America’s last great soldier-statesman” before about 3,000 mourners who came together across party lines at Washington National Cathedral to remember the nation’s 41st president.

Ever the diplomat, the elder Bush managed in death to bring together the nation’s four living ex-presidents, as well as President Donald Trump, the Republican he and his son George W. Bush refused to support two years ago. The gathering was at times awkward as Trump and his 2016 opponent, Hillary Clinton, ignored each other.
