Perhaps fixing the great political divide is this country can be solved with socks! It seems to be working for former U.S. Presidents Bill Clinton and George H.W. Bush.

Clinton dropped by to see the senior Bush at his home in Kennebunkport, ME yesterday. And he brought along a pair of socks bearing Clinton's face. At first glance it appears to be an odd gift. But the two share a love for the footwear that goes back a few years.


According to ABC News, last April, Clinton visited Bush while visiting him in Houston, and gifted Bush a few pairs of colorful socks, tweeting, "Great to spend time with @GeorgeHWBush & Mrs. Bush in Houston today. We caught up about kids, grandkids, old times and new times. And socks."

Clinton is currently on a book tour promoting a new thriller, The President Is Missing, that he co-authored twith writer James Patterson.
