In reply to: Just rrported on CNN - No link yet 's message, "Breaking: George H.W. Bush, 94" on Friday, November 30, 08:58:54pm

Former President George Herbert Walker Bush, who navigated the United States through the end of the Cold War and a realignment of American relations with the Middle East, died Friday. He was 94.
His death was confirmed in a statement released by his office.
Bush, who was elected Ronald Reagan’s vice president in 1980 after stints as CIA director and United Nations ambassador, also had foreign policy define his presidency. The Berlin Wall fell while he was in the White House, the U.S. began building relationships with the former Soviet bloc, and his Operation Desert Storm, which chased Saddam Hussein from Kuwait was the most popular American military intervention since World War II.
But facing a deep recession, the specter of his broken “Read my lips” pledge against raising taxes and a powerful third-party candidacy from Ross Perot, Bush lost his bid for reelection in 1992 and the chance to construct a more robust national legacy.
