The former president, however lost a chance for a second term to the 42nd US president Bill Clinton after breaking a no-new-taxes pledge.

Clinton won the 1992 election with 43 percent of the popular vote, ousting Bush from the White House after one term.

Despite the bitter exchanges between him and his successor, Bill Clinton during the heated campaign period, Bush jotted down a note as he welcomed the 42nd president on January 20, 1993 to the oval house.

 “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.
