With Eye on Political Reality, a Shorter Vacation for Bush - New York Times

With Eye on Political Reality, a Shorter Vacation for Bush - New York Times: "This year reality — in the form of the November midterm elections, the peace activist Cindy Sheehan and the legacy of Hurricane Katrina — has intruded on the president’s summer vacation, cutting short his time at his 1,600-acre ranch.

Instead of parking here for the whole month, Mr. Bush, who arrived Thursday night, will spend just 10 nights before returning to the White House. During his stay, his aides are taking pains to present Mr. Bush as deeply engaged in world events; on Saturday, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and the national security adviser, Stephen J. Hadley, arrived to brief him on the Middle East."

This is good news. Seems like bad things always happen when he's on vacation. So a shorter vacation may help.
