41 sends his regards to 44

Former President George H.W. Bush couldn't attend President Obama's swearing-in ceremonies, but he released a statement Monday congratulating Obama.
"Barbara and I send President and Mrs. Obama -- and their wonderful girls -- our best wishes and prayers on this historic day. May Almighty God bless them and our wonderful country over the next four years," Bush said.
Bush recently was released from a hospital in Houston, where he was being treated for bronchitis, a fever and an infection.
His son, former President George W. Bush, also did not attend the ceremony. Former Presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter were on hand for the inaugural, however.
