Obama honors predecessor Bush at library ceremony

DALLAS (AP) - President Barack Obama is honoring the presidency of George W. Bush, at the dedication of the Bush library in Dallas.

On a day when politics was set aside, the president described his Republican predecessor as a "good man" and as a leader who demonstrated strength, resolve and compassion.

Obama called the dedication of the George W. Bush Presidential Center a "Texas-sized party" befitting the former president.

All five living American presidents are gathered in Dallas for the dedication. Obama says that's a pretty exclusive club - but it's more like a support group for the men who have held an incredibly difficult job.

The president says, "It's impossible to truly understand the nature of the job until it's yours."
