There's a mock situation room where you can make critical decisions, as President Bush did before the Gulf War in the early 90's. [My wife, Raisa, and I] "deeply appreciated the attention, kindness and simplicity typical of George and Barbara Bush, as well as the rest of their large, friendly family".
