Bush Graduation Flip-Flop

Back in October, Brett Marston and I had a discussion about President Bush’s forcing NATO to reshuffle this month’s summit meeting in order to accomodate his attendance at his daughters’ graduation ceremonies at Yale and Texas. Now, he’s decided that he and Laura have decided not to attend to avoid disrupting the proceedings and taking the attention away from the girls.

Now, I can argue this one either way, but I wish he’d make up his mind!

    Bush isn’t attending the graduation ceremonies (just heard that Jenna didn’t attend hers), but he is flying in to celebrate with each of them & attend some private parties.
