Mrs. Bush spoke about her “family business” and life in politics, life as a grandmother and her new focus with husband and former President, overseeing The George W. Bush Institute at The George W. Bush Presidential Library in Dallas, TX. She reiterated that freedom is the main focus of the institute’s initiatives and spoke on the theme of a free enterprise system – a founding principle of businesses in America, such as Vent-A-Hood.
