G.W. Bush's father has just endorsed John McCain in his bid for the US presidency. Bush Senior hails McCain's wartime experience and calls criticisms of McCain from the right wing of the Republican Party "grossly unfair." Some speculate this announcement might cause the fractured Republican Party to rally around the probable nominee. I would not count on that. Bush Senior lives too close to a place called "reality" to have much impact on those Republicans giving McCain a hard time today.
