    Washington (CNN)Former President Bill Clinton and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton will attend President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration later this month, aides to both Clintons told CNN on Tuesday.

    Former President George W. Bush and former first lady Laura Bush will also attend, the 43rd president’s office said in a statement Tuesday.

    “President and Mrs. George W. Bush will attend the 58th Presidential Inauguration Ceremony on January 20, 2017, at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C.,” the statement read. “They are pleased to be able to witness the peaceful transfer of power — a hallmark of American democracy — and swearing-in of President Trump and Vice President Pence.”

    Previously, Jimmy Carter was the only former commander in chief who had publicly said he would attend Trump’s inauguration. Bush’s father, President George H.W. Bush, will not be attending due to his health, a spokesman has told CNN.

    3. Good friends stick together.

    Besides, the money train is still on the tracks – big bucks to still be made!

    Sorry but I don't do Red vs Blue garbage or accept propaganda just because you like the country in question. If this is how you roll, ignore me I want nothing to do with you.

    4. Jimmy Carter is rarely mentioned

    At least he was included here but not in the list of those going, only at the end.  I wonder why Carter gets such bad play.
