President George W. Bush says the inauguration of Barack Obama will be a "moment of hope and pride" for the entire U.S.
In his farewell address to the country, Bush says Obama's story reflects the enduring promise of the United States. Obama will be sworn in as the first U.S. black president on Tuesday.
Bush is giving his final speech to the nation later Thursday. The White House released early excerpts.
The president is using the speech to say thanks to Americans and to defend his legacy in his own terms.
Bush says he has endured setbacks and there are things he would do differently if given the chance. But he said he has always acted with the best interests of the United States in mind.
