George Bush, during a Q&A with journalists immediately prior to the arrival of Nicolas Sarkozy, sans famille, to Maine --
Q Do you think he's bringing cheese?
PRESIDENT BUSH: I think he's bringing goodwill. He's bringing a good brain, good vision and goodwill. I'm looking forward to seeing him.
One wonders if he'd been warned at some point that the French eat brains. More photos of the visit here [here are the official White House photos].
UPDATE: French media wonder why there weren't lobsters -- the obvious Maine specialty -- on the menu:
Avant de partager un pique-nique de hamburgers et de hot-dogs -et non des homards, la spécialité locale- et de déguster une tarte aux myrtilles, M. Sarkozy, M. Bush et le père de ce dernier ont eu un entretien de 45 minutes.
