Forget Democratic and Republican. The Final Four is one big party.
That was evident Monday night as former presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush sat together at the NCAA men’s basketball championship game in Arlington, Texas, where they were seen getting along famously.
The 42nd and 43rd presidents of the United States watched the game with Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, whose star quarterback Tony Romo was sitting a row in front of them with his wife Candice.
Former first lady Laura Bush was also at the game, sitting next to her husband.
At one point, the two presidents appeared on the Jumbotron at AT&T Stadium, grinning broadly as the crowd cheered.
As Connecticut battled (and eventually vanquished with a score of 60-54) Kentucky, the two men’s rooting interests were unclear. Bush, 67, went to college in Connecticut, though of course it was at Yale, not UConn. Clinton, also 67, went to Georgetown.
