President George W. Bush has been in Europe this past week with First Lady Laura Bush (they will return Monday), and one of their stops was in France to meet with President Nicolas Sarkozy. I was very excited to see all the photos published on the official White House and Elysée websites (see below). Nicolas Sarkozy is known stateside for being very pro-American. I am always excited to see such strong relations between my two favorite countries and cultures! France and the United States have come head to head on a number of matters throughout history, but we seem to be entering an era of understanding.
