President George W. Bush's Legacy
January 15, 2009 Dick Cheney is about to leave office having spent the past eight years wielding more power than vice presidents throughout U.S. history. In the first term, he drove policy on issues he cared about. In the end, President Bush became more wary, and Cheney's influence waned but hardly ceased.
January 14, 2009 President Bush will soon leave Washington, D.C., and return to the same Dallas neighborhood where the family lived before he became Texas governor 16 years ago. The house in Preston Hollow is a sprawling rambler next to the estate of billionaire Tom Hicks, a longtime friend.
January 11, 2009 George W. Bush's poll ratings were among the highest and lowest that modern presidents have ever received. But outside the political arena, he's known for unwavering devotion to family and friends, his ranch in Crawford, Texas — and his mountain bike.
January 7, 2009 President Bush leaves office as one of the least popular presidents ever, but he says it's up to history to judge him. Bush likes to recall that Harry Truman was widely reviled when he left the White House 56 years ago but decades later became an icon of strength in adversity.
