Mr. Bush’s death came months after the passing of his beloved wife Barbara who as First Lady served as a role model for millions of women for her dignity and class which will always be her legacy.
As the patriarch of the Bush political dynasty, the former POTUS would see his own son follow him into the White House and to be reelected, something that the elder Bush was unable to accomplish.

Via Reuters, “Former President George H.W. Bush dead at 94”:
Former U.S. President George H.W. Bush, who presided over the end of the Cold War and routed Saddam Hussein’s Iraqi army but lost a chance for a second term after breaking a no-new-taxes pledge, died on Friday at the age of 94.
Bush, the 41st president of the United States, who lived longer than any of his predecessors and possessed one of the most impressive resumes in American political history, died peacefully at his home in Houston, according to a source close to the family.
His death at 10:10 p.m. Central time (0410 GMT) was first announced in a brief statement issued by longtime spokesman Jim McGrath, who said funeral arrangements had yet to be scheduled.
He was a leader from a kinder and gentler era before moderates were purged from political parties as is currently happening with the Democrats who despite the fall of the Soviet Union show that old ideas never die, they are simply repackaged.

That leaves Jimmy Carter who was a few months younger than Mr. Bush as the oldest former president.
Bush may be dead but that “New World Order” that he spoke about is stronger than ever…
