The two Bush presidents — George H.W. and son George W. — offered their personal recollections about their days in the White House in a video appearance at the Republican convention Wednesday night.
Neither man attended in person.
In the video, the son remembered a visit to the Oval Office by Russian President Vladimir Putin and how impressed he was. The father remembered former "Saturday Night Live" cast member Dana Carvey's imitations of him — and a funny performance in the White House.
Also remembering their White House days and past conventions were first ladies Barbara Bush and Laura Bush.
