Inside the West Wing
At 7.15am this morning President Bush will be addressing the CPAC Conference. Wild horses wouldn't drag me out of my bed at that ungodly hour, even to see the most powerful man in the world. However, sixteen hours later I hope to be getting a private peek inside the Oval Office during a private tour of the West Wing of the White House. As you can imagine, I am rather excited about it. I suspect it is not much like the set of the TV programme. Now here's a question to ponder: given the opportunity, would you rather meet President Bush or President Bartlett? Laura Bush or Mrs Bartlett? The current White House Press Secretary or C J Cregg? The current Chief of Staff or Josh Lyman? The current White House Communications Director or Sam Seaborn? Yep. Me too.
