Bush Meets Steele

As I was leaving the RNC meeting at the Capitol Hilton tonight, a few black SUVs pulled up in the driveway, and former President George H.W. Bush emerged from the backseat of one. Walking with the help of a cane, he entered the lobby, where newly elected RNC chairman Michael Steele was shaking hands and posing for pictures. Bush and Steele greeted each other and hugged, while Republicans who were still gathered having drinks at the bar looked on and applauded the former prez as he walked to the elevators.
