    I'm trying my best to ignore the whole ridiculous display, but it's omnipresent.

    It is a four day event. He will lay in the Capitol while people make speeches, looks like Trump was not asked to speak. Goes to Houston for the service and then to College Station for the burial.

    The train ride from Houston to College Station will be something to see.

    HW was an OK prez....but nice guys finish last, why he lost in 1992. No disrespect here, I am totally in awe of his accomplishments (especially his 18 yo WWII service)! I do get a little nausiated with the fawning over him now that he is gone. Let the good man RIP.

    A man who was the head of the CIA should never be considered a "nice guy". Just sayin'.

    I'm not sure what the DCI knows and doesn't know about the dirty deeds being done in the name of national security. Seems more like a public face on a very secretive entity.

    Don't get me wrong, he finished it. But the last couple of sentences were tough to get out. I was rooting for him because I saw his daughters yesterday talk about how that he was concerned he might break down at some point during the eulogy.

    I think he was a good man however he stopped the Reagan revolution and sold us back to the swamp. There was far worse presidents but he was not even near the list of good ones. Sorry for his family and he did have a good list of accomplishments among them getting elected president. But as to his term as President meh.

    Best way to sum up his presidential term is had he beat Reagan and been the nominee we would still be fighting the cold war

    Because without St. Ronald, nothing could have happened in the past 38 years that would have caused the collapse of the USSR?
