Hmmmm… we know Laura Bush is in Washington.
[Rep. Ray] LaHood and [Dan] Meyer [Bush’s liaison to the House] got into a shouting match as emotions ran high and voices were raised yesterday morning in the White House while lawmakers were waiting to meet with first lady Laura Bush, according to two legislators who witnessed the exchange.

I wish Laura were here. No, I know it. I’m proud of her. She is a — she’s a gracious, lovely person.

UPDATE: Laura skips Military Spouse Day.
THE PRESIDENT: Thank you all for coming. I wish Laura were here to have been able to greet you. She would be just as impressed as I am today by the wonderful stories and the great compassion of our recipients who, I know if they had to give a speech, would say they just — they’re just doing what they love to do, and they represent thousands who are doing the same thing.
