George H.W. Bush has a new hairdo, and it is not likely what you think.  The former Prez, now 89 years old, has gone -- bald!

The decision to show a naked scalp has nothing to do with styles or fads, but rather to show support for the two year old son of one of his U.S. Secret Service Protective Detail, who is battling leukemia.

No announcements were made prior to the ultimate hair cut, until a photo of Mr. Bush with the young child on his lap, made a viral appearance on the web.

Mrs. Bush was reportedly moved over the actions of her husband, and even quipped that he was more youthful looking. (I agree with her).

The Bushes lost their own three year old daughter in 1953, making the plight of this little boy very personal in nature.
