On the first Tuesday in November, also Melbourne Cup Day in Australia, Republican George Bush Senior became the 41st President of the United States of America. He had been Vice-President for the two terms of the Presidency of the high profile Ronald Reagan. President Reagan had been well known world wide for his acting and corporate role in the film industry and his time as Governor of California. George Bush had yet to achieve similar focus on the international stage.
