Former President George H.W. Bush and his son Jeb paid a social call on President Barack Obama at the White House Saturday.

The former president, 85, walked gingerly into the White House, using a cane, as heavy snow fell. He departed 35 minutes later, telling reporters it was a "good meeting, good meeting."

His son Jeb, a former governor of Florida, was with him.

White House aides said the visit was simply a social call because the former president was in Washington for a dinner.
