What Will Bush Do After January 20?

I recently read Fmr Pres. Lyndon Johnson's biography on wikipedia. It said that after leaving the White House in January 1969, Johnson went into a state of "self-destruction".. chain-smoking and heavy drinking. He only lived 4 years, dying in January 1973.

Now I'm assuming Bush, another Texan, will be much wiser in his post-presidential life and not revert to his early years but who can say for sure....

He will live in the Dallas area as his wife Laura was looking for homes there earlier this year. That will make it easier to be close to the site of the construction and set up of his Presidential Library to be on the campus of Southern Methodist University. I also suspect he will work on his Presidential biography as well, a common and multi-million $ making post-Presidency activity. I doubt he will be like Bill Clinton or Jimmy Carter post-Presidentally active in foundations to help the public or the lesser of our world's society. I supect he will be largely shunned by the mainstream Republican party.

Unlike recent past Presidents, I don't think he will go on any big time money speaking tours to big corporations like Bill Clinton, his father and Reagan did, at least for the foreseeable future. His tenure as President with it's many problems as to policy and due to his his weak speaking style will limit those opportunities. I doubt he will travel outside the USA due to fears of arrests by people or governments of other countries for 'war crimes' or charges of crimes against humanity for the Iraq war, torture and the like. He may also face a number of Congressional investigations as to his war and other policies to take up his time for a few year.

GWB is in good physical condition, he often runs or rides a bicycle, his father is still alive at I think about 82-83 years old, so I suspect he will be around for a number of years, probably into his 80's.

Agree that he probably won't travel internationally much, but not for fear of arrest. Rather, for fear of the outside world. I think he'd happily be able to spend the rest of his life without setting foot outside of TX.

Actually this sounds a lot like LBJ. Outside of his "Base" I doubt Bush has any appeal whatsoever. You might see him in some GOP fundraisers but that is about it. He'll likely keep a low profile.

I don't know if anyone remembers McNamara (Not a President, but a polarizing figure for sure) and he was actually nearly beaten up when he went out to eat...Bush has SS protection, but I wouldn't be surprised if he gets a less than friendly reception outside of TX.

Kinda off topic but that would be an interesting line to have on your resume.

"So, Mr. X, it says in here that you were President of the U.S./Prime Minister of UK/etc. What exactly did you do in that position?"

"Uhmm, run a country."

Actually, I wonder if Presidents/Prime Ministers/et al do even think of going back to politics (as a state senator/gov, city mayor, or even run for Congress). Or are they just done with it and want to kick back and relax (and curse all the new laws that he/she enacted while in power!)?

Also, are former Presidents allowed to drive now that they're off duty or do they have SS drive everywhere?

French President Valéry Giscard d'Estaing for many years was/is in parliament, in a leading position in his home-area etc. AFTER the end of his presidency. Italian Prime Ministers tend to return to that job up to 7 times after some intervals. German Federal Chancellor Willy Brandt after his resignation as Chancellor for many years stayed on as party chief and in parliament. Mrs Thatcher after leaving 10 Downing Street became a member of the House of Lords. The same was with Harold Macmillan who for ages served in the Upper House as Earl of Stockport. Former Swiss Federal Counciller Adolf Ogi after leaving the Federal government for some years was U.N. Ambassador for Sports.

I don't think his reasons for "hiding out" will be a result of low popularity or safety concerns, bur rather his nature.

I agree with what you said here. He would be very stupid to leave the U.S. since as soon as he sets foot on certain foreign soil, he could be arrested. I would like nothing more than to see him at The Hague, but I don't think that will happen.

When Bill Clinton was asked this very same question 8 years ago, his answer was something like "The first thing I am going to do is take some time off. Being President isn't easy and the first thing I really need is a big huge break."

You're wealthy, you're in your 50's, and you just held what is arguably the highest office in the world. For eight years. Go on vacation.
