Promising a "kinder, gentler nation," Bush defeated Michael Dukakis in the 1988 presidential election. In spite of Bush's near-record popularity after military strikes against Panama and a successful war against Iraq, domestic discontent over economic and social issues took their toll, and he lost his bid for re-election in 1992 when he was defeated by Democrat Bill Clinton. Eight years later Bush's son George W. Bush followed Clinton as president after defeating Clinton's vice president, Al Gore, in the elections of 2000. George W.
