He said that the Bush family does not live and die for limelight.

"Our lives have never ended in the White House. We don't live and die for the limelight or the head table or the plaque."

Bush Senior was in the White House when the tally of his son's victory came through, and while he could feel the pride, his public demeanour was as controlled as it had been throughout the knife-edge campaign, Time said.

Discussing the Bush dynasty, Bush Senior said, "I am not trying to build a legacy. I will leave that to the historians. If I get a good shake, then fine. If I don't, I'll be in heaven."

"The more Barbara (Wife) and I get, the more we value our private time in Maine or Houston, and we love our little apartment at the [Bush] Library in College Station and being around the Texas A&M campus with the kids," he told the Time.
