Bush's domestic legacy was centered around his signature "thousand points of light" initiative that recognized the heroic accomplishments of little-known Americans.

In 1992, Bush lost his re-election bid to Clinton - whose aide coined the now famous slogan "It's the economy, stupid" - as eccentric third-party candidate Ross Perot syphoned off conservative votes.
