Donald Trump may or may not have the Rockettes at his inauguration, but he'll at least have Jimmy Carter. Politico reports Carter is the only former president so far to RSVP to the inauguration. A source close to the Clintons says they aren't sure whether or not they'll be attending next month, though another source says Bill is leaning toward skipping. And a spokesperson for George W Bush says he'll make an announcement closer to the event, telling CBS News: “We simply don’t discuss his schedule this far in advance." Meanwhile, George HW Bush will pass on attending the inauguration because of his age. The Bushes formerly skipped out on Obama's second inauguration, citing Bush Sr.'s health at the time.
