I admit I was first astounded when I heard that President Obama was not choosing to attend the funeral of former First Lady Nancy Reagan. Current First Lady Michelle Obama is attending, and that is the tradition. I then read the following, and if it's true made me pause. Apparently President Reagan did not attend the funeral of First Lady Bess Truman. President Carter did not attend the funeral of First Lady Mamie Eisenhower. President Clinton did not attend the funeral of First Lady Pat Nixon. President Bush did not attend the funeral of First Lady "Lady Bird" Johnson, and President Obama did not attend the funeral of First Lady Betty Ford.

Please note - I did not verify if the Presidents did or did not attend the funerals listed above. But, if true, does that change your mind? Here's your chance to make your opinion known
