Bush's Final Press Conference

Today our departing president held his last press conference, and it was classic Dubya: hokey jokes, strange grins, and a prickly defensiveness. The highlight: Bush admitted, for the first time, to making several mistakes during his presidency. Apparently he was the last to find out. "Clearly, putting a 'mission accomplished' on an aircraft carrier was a mistake," he said he now realized. "Obviously, some of

my rhetoric has been a mistake."
