Stirring Photo From Barbara Bush’s Funeral Unites America for 5 Minutes

Barbara Bush’s funeral on Saturday drew a crowd of political bigwigs and dignitaries, including four former presidents (two Bushes, one Clinton, one Obama) one almost-president (the other Clinton), and many other VIPs.

The boldest of the boldfaced names posed together for a photo that fleetingly reminded Americans that even fierce political adversaries and their spouses — including a representative from the current administration — can join together and smile once in awhile.

It must be said, though, that the warm and fuzzy feelings engendered by the picture were thrown into particularly sharp focus because of the president who wasn’t in it. And we don’t mean Jimmy Carter.
