Obama and Bush, Sr.Amid the next crop of recipients to be awarded the Medal of Freedom by President Barack Obama — a list that includes African-American luminaries such as Maya Angelou and Bill Russell — is a rather curious entry: George H.W. Bush, the 41st President of the United States and the father of the man that President Obama succeeded for the presidency, George W. Bush.

Billed as a bipartisan move, the news of the award should shock progressives already reeling from the defeats of the mid-term elections.
