There was an item in Today's Houston Chronicle about the elder Bush's Christmas in the hospital leading me to believe the former POTUS may in fact be Jewish:
Former President George H.W. Bush noshed on Chinese food with his wife and a few family members as he spent Christmas in a Houston hospital, where setbacks following a persistent cough have kept him from going home.Chinese food? Christmas? Ladies and Gentlemen I rest my case.
And Mr. President ---refuah shleimah (may you have a complete recovery).
