Final Farewell

Bushes Leave Town

Though most Americans have expressed their disapproval for years, the Bushes have called 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue their home until this morning. In the final step of transition, George and Laura Bush boarded a helicopter bound for a homecoming in Midland, Texas. President Obama and his wife Michelle kept with tradition and gave them a proper send-off from alongside the Capitol. Earlier in the day, as Bush left the White House for the last time, he blew a kiss from his presidential motorcade.
