George W. Bush emerged from his fathers shadow and was elected U.S. president in 2000. With his victory, Bush became the first president since 1888 to be elected despite losing the popular vote. Readers examine his two terms and their many challenges, including the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. He pushed for expanded powers and launched a war on terrorism and the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq. Despite many setbacks in his domestic agenda, he initiated a program to address the HIV/AIDS pandemic in Africa and the Caribbean, appointed two justices to the Supreme Court, and signed a U.S.-India nuclear agreement.
