George W. Bush and Tony Blair could reunite at Margaret Thatcher's funeral

Margaret Thatcher's funeral in London on Wednesday could present the opportunity for former allies George W. Bush and Tony Blair to reunite. All former U.S. presidents were invited to the funeral.

Mrs. Thatcher's death last week prompted President Bush to praise the former Prime Minister as an inspiration leader who "stood on principle and guided er nation with confidence and clarity."

The war on terrorism brought President Bush and Prime Minister Blair together as they formed an alliance and friendship:
Blair and Bush formed a strong alliance over their decision to launch the invasion of Iraq ten years ago, much to the dismay of many on the left in Britain given the Republican president's conservative views.
On Monday, a pre-dawn rehearsal for the Wednesday funeral was held in the streets of London.
