Former Presidents Bush, Clinton to travel to Mandela memorial

Former US Presidents George W. Bush and Laura Bush will travel with President Barack Obama to South African to attend Nelson Mandelaโ€™s memorial.

Former President Bill Clinton will also attend the memorial, but his travel plans were not released.

A spokesman for former President George H. W. Bush said he is not attending the Mandela memorial, citing the traveling distance and the former presidentโ€™s advanced age. He is 89.

George W. Bush and Bill Clinton met with Mandela multiple times in the past two decades.
