(Newser) – President Obama and his two immediate predecessors will all head to South Africa as it memorializes Nelson Mandela, CNN reports. "President and Mrs. George W. Bush have gratefully accepted the president and Mrs. Obama's invitation to accompany them to South Africa on Air Force One," says a Bush rep. Clinton's travel plans aren't yet known. George H.W. Bush won't be able to attend because of his age and the distance involved, says a spokesman. (Read more George W. Bush stories.)
