Before he was President: George Walker Bush

George Walker Bush, 2001-2009 oil executive, sport team owner, governor of Texas
Not quite a star athlete in high school, George Walker Bush created a stickball league and served as a cheerleader for the school's football team. In college he liked to party and one night after drinking too much he laid down on the road and rolled himself home. Unlike his father, Bush was an average student at school. He graduated from Yale University with a low C average. Bush and Laura Welch were married in 1977. He was introduced to Laura, a schoolteacher and librarian, at a backyard barbecue. He proposed to her after a three months courtship. Source
