"On the helicopter was my dad, who I love, my mom, who I adore, and my wife, who was an awesome first lady," President Bush says. "I was a comfortable guy, and I was ready to go home."
Since that day, the former president has chosen to stay out of the limelight. He has been living quietly in his home state of Texas and working hard on his highly anticipated memoir, Decision Points. "What's so fascinating about this book is that it's like being inside the president's head as he makes his most critical decisions," Oprah says.
