Jerry Jones doesn't regret attending Bush Library dedication

BY foxsports • April 26, 2013

IRVING, Texas — Jerry Jones received some criticism for attending the dedication of the George W. Bush Presidential Library Thursday morning. Some thought the Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager should’ve been spending his entire day at Valley Ranch, preparing for the team’s first-round pick, instead of hanging out on the SMU campus.
The Cowboys ended up trading back in the draft, moving from No. 18 to No. 31 and gaining a third-round selection in the swap. They used the No. 31 pick on Wisconsin center Travis Frederick, a player the Cowboys had ranked No. 22 overall on their draft board.
Jones didn’t seem to be bothered by the criticism when the topic was mentioned late Thursday night. Jones talked about being honored to hear speeches from the five presidents in attendance.
"Knowing what I know now, I never would’ve forgiven myself for missing it," Jones said.
