Jeb Bush joins father for proud moment at White House



Former Gov. Jeb Bush was at the White House today to see his father, former President George H.W. Bush, receive the Medal of Freedom.

President Obama honored Bush, 86, as a "diplomatic hand" who made possible what many had thought was impossible -- ending the Cold War without firing a shot.

"His humility and his decency reflects the very best of the American spirit. Those of you who know him, this is a gentleman, inspiring citizens to become points of light in service to others," Obama said. (AP photo)
