(Newser) – They were hard to miss, really—the pink socks worn by George HW Bush at today's dedication of his son's presidential library. A sartorial slip by the 88-year-old?

At this point, it's a safe bet he'll be wearing a similar pair whenever he's in public, notes this story in the Houston Chronicle from last year.
