Sully the service dog visits Bush’s casket in the US Capitol

Sully The Service Dog Arrives To View Owner George H.W. Bush's Casket

Bush, the 41st United States president, was remembered as a patrician figure who represents a bygone era of bipartisan civility in American politics. He was a familiar presence in Washington: a congressman in the late 1960s, then Central Intelligence Agency director, envoy to China and Republican Party chairman.

"He was so qualified, and I think he was just a decent man", said Sharon Terry, touring Washington with friends from an Indianapolis garden club.

Others dignitaries who attended on Tuesday included Vice President Mike Pence, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and House Speaker Paul Ryan, along with several Trump staffers.

During his four years in the White House, Bush ended the Iraqi occupation of Kuwait, steered the United States through the end of the Cold War and condemned China's 1989 crackdown on pro-democracy demonstrators in Beijing's Tiananmen Square. At the casket's side, the aide lifted Dole, 95, into a standing position.

George W Bush himself seemed to be holding back tears.

Bush then shook hands with former President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama, causing her to smile when he passed her what appeared to be a piece of candy.

Trump's relationship with the Bush family has been tense.

The late Mr Bush called Mr Trump a "blowhard". So, before I write any more, watch below what happened at the Capitol Rotunda on Tuesday when Sen.

The public viewing of Bush's casket extends until early Wednesday when the casket will be transported to Washington National Cathedral for the state funeral. And President Bush was a bipartisan president.

Eulogies will be offered by George W Bush, former Wyoming senator Alan Simpson, former Canadian prime minister Brian Mulroney and historian Jon Meacham, a Bush family spokespeople said.

A Connecticut Yankee from a wealthy family who moved to Texas to be an oilman, Bush has been eulogized as a president with a keen sense of civility and duty. "Honestly I just liked him", he said.

Bush passed away on Friday at the age of 94.

Flags on public buildings are flying at half-staff for 30 days.

Trump has often aimed political taunts at the Bush family, long a symbol of the traditional, more moderate wing of the U.S. Republican party that often is at odds with Trump's populist supporters.

One of Mr Bush's major achievements was assembling the worldwide military coalition that liberated the tiny, oil-rich nation of Kuwait from invading neighbour Iraq in 1991, lasting only 100 hours. The pair quickly bonded, with the former president even buying socks in honor of his beloved companion.
