George H.W. Bush will vote for Hillary. Or will he?

Politico reports that Kathleen Harrington Kennedy Townsend says former Republican President George H.W. Bush is voting for Hillary Clinton for president. The article quotes a Bush spokesman as declining to confirm or deny.

But later, that same spokesman, Jim McGrath, Tweeted:

Those reporting how @GeorgeHWBush will vote this year, it's not clear anyone was there to verify KKT. Still checking, keep your powder dry.
In other news in the national reality TV show known as the race for president, new polling seems friendlier to Clinton than some recent numbers. Disheartening is Bill Moyers' take on the sham that the televised debates have become since networks assumed control from the League of Women Voters. Really. Chris Wallace, a Roger Ailes defender and Foxite, is going to "moderate" the final debate and has already announced it's not his job to challenge candidates on lies they might tell.

UPDATE: Looks like the story is holding up.

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.
