Bush's Video Message of Support

President Bush sent a video message to the IOC Evaluation Commission yesterday, in support of New York's bid to host the 2012 Olympics.

Bush's videotaped greeting to the Evaluation Commission was sent as he was traveling in Europe. It was, by all accounts, "very warm, very friendly and very well received".

The IOC was then entertained by; Meryl Streep, Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg and heard Wynton Marsalis play at a Jazz at Lincoln Center performance. There was then a lavish fireworks display.
