Obama, Clinton, and G.W. Bush to attend Mandela's Funeral

  • President Obama, and former Presidents G.W. Bush and Bill Clinton are going to South Africa in order to attend Nelson Mandela's funeral service.

    "[Former] President and Mrs. George W. Bush have gratefully accepted the president and Mrs. Obama's invitation to accompany them to South Africa on Air Force One." a Bush rep said. 

    A spokesman mentioned that George H. W Bush won't be accompanying given his age and the long travel.

    Clinton said Mandela was his genuine friend as well as a "really fine partner as president. So my whole family will be there. And we're looking forward to having the chance to say good-bye once last time." His travel plans are not known as of yet.
