Bush Jovial During Presidential Library Dedication

Posted: Updated:

DALLAS (AP) - George W. Bush jokes there was a time in his life that he "wasn't likely to be found in a library, much less found one."
    
He delivered several jokes Thursday during his speech at the dedication ceremony for his library and museum at the Southern Methodist University campus in Dallas.
    
Bush said America must work to "expand the reach of freedom." Tears welled in his eyes as he concluded, saying the nation's best days are ahead.
    
He joined President Barack Obama and the three other living presidents - including his father, George H.W. Bush - at the ceremony.
    
Before Bush's speech, the U.S. Army Chorus played "Battle Hymn of the Republic." During the music, Obama was seen with his arm around former first lady Barbara Bush as they chatted.
