Incidentally, then prez Bush also attended the Beijing Olympics, as well as other U.S. dignitaries & famous people.|
At least, we encountered one & who knows if Mitt will become prez?
My guess is, he visited that area in Beijing just to check it out since he's in China.
By the way, Mitt's a very soft-spoken person to our big surprise!
He's not the fired-up fella in tailored suits that we see in TV all the time nor is he very tall because I'm only 5"4' & so, he must be just 6 feet.
But he's really handsome in person than seen in TV while Ann is pretty herself.
Anyway, it was a few days later after that encounter that John McCain announced his running mate [Sarah Palin] & the rest was history.
Also, it was only a few days later upon returning home on Aug. 28 that the collapse of AIG will take place thereby plunging the US economy which still reverberates to this very day.
