Bush gets airborne birthday suprise party (Happy 62nd)
U.S. President George Bush was treated to a surprise 62nd birthday party aboard Air Force One en route to the Group of Eight summit in Japan. Bush and his contingent were nearing Japan when First Lady Laura Bush and senior White House staff gathered in the plane's conference room. There, a steward put a single candle on a coconut cake, the lights were dimmed, and when Bush entered the room, the group yelled, "Surprise," White House spokeswoman Dana Perino said,
"He dutifully pretended to be surprised," she added.
