Bush’s service dog again pays tribute to his late owner

Ferried by motorcade to the Capitol along streets bathed in the auburn afternoon sun, the president ended his journey along Constitution Avenue, adorned with US and D.C. flags flying from lamp posts.

The former president was eulogized by both Vice President Mike Pence and House Speaker Paul Ryan, among other politicians. "David Gergen just mentioned we need to give him credit for not tweeting out nasty things about President Bush". He will be buried Thursday at the George Bush Presidential Library at Texas A&M University alongside his wife and Robin Bush, the daughter they lost to leukemia in 1953 at the age of 3.

Democratic Representative Nancy Pelosi, the incoming House speaker, and Senate Democratic leader Charles (Chuck) Ellis Schumer placed wreaths at the ceremony. It was to remain open overnight. A WWII combat veteran, Bush served as a member of Congress from Texas, ambassador to the United Nations, director of the Central Intelligence Agency, vice president and 41st president of the United States.

Bush and family pose in front of George H.W. Bush's official portrait, which is draped with black cloth.

Bush is the 11th president to lie in state at the Capitol and among 31 people to have been given the honor.

The United States Postal Service will suspend all operations on the National Day of Mourning in remembrance of former President George H.W. Bush. Texans will be able to pay their respects as the train makes the journey - an estimated two hours and 25 minutes - from Spring, Texas to College Station, Texas. Flags on public buildings are flying at half-staff for 30 days out of respect for Bush.

Fred Curry, one of the few African-Americans in line, is a registered Democrat from Hyattsville, Maryland, who voted for Bush in 1988, the election won by the one-term president.

Leaders said they'll push off until later this month a looming shutdown showdown, eager to avoid tainting the commemoration of Mr. Bush with unseemly brinksmanship.

He insists Bush's passing marks the end of an era.

CNN repeatedly attacked President Donald Trump on Monday for putting politics aside and paying respects to former President George H.W. Bush in a segment that exemplified the network's willingness to criticize the president for ratings and not for his actions.

The Bushes later made a surprise visit to the Capitol Rotunda, shaking hands with visitors and tourists lined up to honor the family patriarch. Postal Service announced on its website that all retail locations will be closed Wednesday and home delivery will be suspended for the day, with the exception of some package deliveries.

A humble hero of World War II, Bush was just 20 when he survived being shot down during a bombing run over a Japanese island.
