US President George W. Bush on Wednesday publicly congratulated anointed successor Barack Obama on his historic victory and promised "complete cooperation" as he moves into the White House.
   
"Last night, I had a warm conversation with president-elect Barack Obama. I congratulated him and Senator (Joe) Biden on their impressive victory," Bush said in the White House Rose Garden.
   
"I told the president-elect he can count on complete cooperation from my administration as he makes the transition to the White House," said the outgoing president, whose second four-year term ends January 20.
