Obama at Bush dedication

Obama at Bush dedication news

President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama will attend the dedication of George W. Bush's presidential library in Texas — completing a rare reunion of the "Presidents Club" that includes all the living former presidents and their spouses.

The George W. Bush Presidential Center is set to be dedicated in a ceremony April 25 at Southern
Methodist University in Dallas, and the dignitaries on hand will include Bush's parents, George H.W. and Barbara Bush; Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton — herself a possible presidential contender in 2016; and Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter.

Time first reported that the exclusive group will be united, although former first lady Nancy Reagan, who is 91, will not attend.

Shortly before he took office, Obama hosted his four living predecessors for a luncheon at the White House, the first such White House gathering since 1981.

The Bush library will include records and artifacts from George W. Bush's administration and a replica of the Oval Office. It is set to open to the public May 1.
