President Bush is a graduate of Yale University, so Harkness Tower is visible in the background. The significant people in his life are his wife Barbara, and his sons George W. and Jeb. Images related to his presidency are, the aircraft carrier George H. W. Bush depicted with a stealth bomber rising above the deck, the Statute of Liberty at the edge of the presidential seal, sky diving at ninety years old and the golden shores of America.
