President Bush has reached the farewell stage of his presidency. In coming months, he'll visit Japan, the Beijing Olympics, Germany, Italy, France, England and Northern Ireland. Today he's in Slovenia, part of what used to be Yugoslavia, and the site for this year's annual summit of the US and European Union. It was in here where he first met Vladimir Putin and famously said, "I looked the man in the eye...was able to get a sense of his soul...and found him to be very straightforward and trustworthy."
