Emotion Fills The Air At George W. Bush Libary Dedication
It was a historic gathering of all five living presidents and their first ladies. They came together in Dallas to join George W. Bush at the dedication of his presidential library.
They were last together in 2009 during George W. Bush's final days in the White House before Barack Obama’s Inauguration.
88-year-old George H.W. Bush, who suffers from Parkinsons Disease, appeared in a wheelchair. He did manage to stand to accept the standing ovation of the thousands in the audience.
When George W. Bush thanked his twin daughters, Jenna, who gave birth to a daughter less than two weeks ago, and Barbara, they wiped away tears in the first row.
George W. Bush said, "Whatever challenges come before us, I still believe America's best days lay ahead."
And the emotion flowed for Bush himself at the end of his speech.
But the matriarch of the Bush family is revealing that she doesn't want her son former Florida Governor Jeb Bush to run for president.
The comment came when three generations of Bush women sat down for an interview with the Today show's Matt Lauer.
Lauer asked, “Mrs. Bush would you like to see your son, Jeb, run?”
Barbara Bush replied, “He's by far the most qualified, but no. We've had enough Bushes."
Lauer asked, "Have you expressed that to him?"
George W. Bush’s daughters Jenna and Barbara joked, "Well, now!"
