Former US President George W. Bush Sr plans to vote for Hillary Clinton in November, according to a member of another famous political family, the Kennedys.
A report by Politico said that Bush, 92, had intended to stay silent on the White House race between Clinton and Donald Trump, but that on Monday, former Maryland lieutenant governor and daughter of the late Robert F. Kennedy, Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, said in a Facebook post that former Republican president told her he’s voting for Clinton.
She is reported as having posted a photo with the former president to Facebook, captioned: “The President told me he’s voting for Hillary!!”.
I’m not surprised as he loves his country and knows how serious the top job is.
Bush 43 has not said either who he will vote for, and he could well vote Clinton also. This would lead to the extraordinary situation of every living Republican President voting for the Democratic candidate – as well as the last Republican nominee (Romney).
