In a rare event, all five living U.S. Presidents converged today for the official opening of George W. Bush's presidential library in Dallas, Texas.
Bush, Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush and Jimmy Carter were cheered by a crowd of former White House officials and world leaders.
They were joined on stage by their wives - the nation's current and former first ladies (below) - at the outdoor ceremony on a sunny Texas morning.
The leaders were putting aside the profound ideological differences that have divided them for years for a day of pomp and pleasantries for Bush, 66.
