(Newser) – For a while there, it looked like Jimmy Carter was going to be the only ex-president at Donald Trump's inauguration. But CBS News reports a spokesperson for George W. and Laura Bush said Tuesday the couple will be attending. "They are pleased to be able to witness the peaceful transfer of power," the spokesperson says. More surprisingly, two sources close to the Clintons tell New York Magazine Bill and Hillary will also be in attendance. The decision was reportedly made after Hillary spent weeks discussing it with friends and advisers. The sources say Bill and Hillary are going out of a "sense of duty and respect for the American democratic process." The fourth and final living president, George HW Bush, is staying home.
