George HW Bush might've been trying to stay out of this election, but a Facebook post has just thrown him into the center of it. "The President told me he’s voting for Hillary!!" wrote Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, Robert F Kennedy's daughter, in the caption of a picture of her and the elder Bush shaking hands in Maine on Monday, reports the New York Times. The Democrat and former Maryland lieutenant governor confirmed the news to Politico. A rep for Bush, however, says that "the vote President Bush will cast as a private citizen in some 50 days will be just that: a private vote cast in some 50 days." (More George HW Bush stories.)
