    73年长久婚姻

      老布什与芭芭拉的婚姻,维持了73年,直到芭芭拉去世。他们是目前美国历史上婚姻时间最长的总统夫妇,早在2000年就超越了美国第二任总统约翰·亚当斯夫妇54年的婚姻纪录。

      在结婚70周年的时候,老布什通过社交网络发布了充满爱意的纪念日消息。他放上芭芭拉亲吻自己的照片,并深情地写道:“70年前的今天,纽约州莱伊的芭芭拉·皮尔斯使我成为这个地球上最幸福、最幸运的男人。”

    RIP!
    当了8年副总统,4年总统。很少有的没有连任成功的总统,败于克林顿。不知川总能否连任?他更神。

    The letter George H.W. Bush left for Clinton is a lesson in grace
    By Faith Karimi, CNN
    Updated 8:21 AM ET, Sat December 1, 2018

    CNN Special Report "Remembering 41: President George H. W. Bush" airs tonight at 8 p.m. ET.

    (CNN) When Bill Clinton entered the White House, he found a letter from the man he beat: George H.W. Bush. Notes from outgoing presidents to incoming ones are a tradition, but Bush's letter on January 20, 1993, is a lesson on grace in defeat.

    "He made us feel at home, as much as he could. Total class," Clinton said of the letter.

    Here's the full text of the letter:

    Dear Bill,

    When I walked into this office just now I felt the same sense of wonder and respect that I felt four years ago. I know you will feel that, too.

    I wish you great happiness here. I never felt the loneliness some Presidents have described.

    There will be very tough times, made even more difficult by criticism you may not think is fair. I'm not a very good one to give advice; but just don't let the critics discourage you or push you off course.

    You will be our President when you read this note. I wish you well. I wish your family well.

    Your success now is our country's success. I am rooting hard for you.

    Good luck—
    George


    Once political rivals, Presidents Bush and Clinton ended up forming an unlikely friendship.

    "Because you run against each other, that doesn't mean you're enemies," Bush once said. "Politics doesn't have to be uncivil and nasty."

    Bush lived by that quote, former Secretary of State Colin Powell told CNN.

    "I wish we could get some of that back in our system now," said Powell.

    In his statement after Bush's death, Clinton recounted the friendship between the two.

    "I will be forever grateful for the friendship we formed," Clinton wrote. "From the moment I met him as a young governor invited to his home in Kennebunkport, I was struck by the kindness he showed to Chelsea, by his innate and genuine decency, and by his devotion to Barbara, his children, and their growing brood."
