How am I being petty? As a former president, W holds a prestigious place in US history and it seems petty not to show up at an inauguration. He should do so simply out of tradition and respect for the office.
One of the talking heads said he was taking care of his sick dad.
Sorry but thats BS. He's not by his bedside 24 hours a day. Jeb could have been at Dad's bedside for a 1/2 day while George W. showed up like all past presidents.
