Speaking of the President's milestone day, the Washington Post yesterday was clearly disappointed that Mr. Bush wasn't making a bigger deal of turning 60 or observing his big day ahead of time:

...Bush appeared annoyed when a reporter asked if he planned to treat himself for his birthday, which is Thursday.

"Generally, I celebrate my birthday on the birthday itself," he scolded.

This "[i]n contrast to President Bill Clinton, whose 50th birthday in office was celebrated with an extravagant, star-filled, televised gala ..." A nice reminder. Would Bush numbers be higher if he were an obsessive megalomaniac?
