Bush home for wedding

President Bush stuck out his right elbow Thursday, jokingly demonstrating how he’ll escort his daughter down the aisle at her wedding this weekend.

He made the gesture at Andrews Air Force Base before boarding Air Force One for the flight to Texas, where Jenna Bush will be married Saturday before about 200 guests at the family’s 1,600 acre, secluded ranch. Asked if he was excited, the president smiled and gave a thumbs-up.

"He’s looking forward to it," White House spokesman Gordon Johndroe told reporters aboard the plane as it flew from rainy Washington to sunny Texas. "He’s excited like any proud father is to see one of his daughters get married."


"I think he’s also going to make sure he gets a good night’s sleep tonight so he can stay up late the rest of the weekend and enjoy all the activities."
