Former president George H.W. Bush choked up on NBC's Today show while reading a love letter to his wife Barbara from their 49th wedding anniversary, making Barbara jokingly compare him to the equally emotional John Boehner.


"You know what?" Barbara told George. "You could be speaker of the House."
