Chirac and Laura Bush Have a Tryst

laura chirac

By our Paris correspondent, Mark Fisher

PARIS — First lady, Laura Bush, on a short visit to Paris, called on French President Jacques Chirac on Sunday. The French leader greeted her with "warmth," according to White House officials.

Chirac kissed Mrs. Bush's hand as he welcomed her to the Elysée Palace, then led her to a room complete with oversized couch, automated mood music, hot tub and champagne fountain. He then excused himself as he left to "slip into something more comfortable," and invited the first lady to warm herself up in the hot tub.

The French President returned moments later, wearing a silk smoking jacket.

"I don't think I should be here," Mrs. Bush told Chirac, as he deftly slipped out of his robe and into the churning spa. "My husband wouldn't approve."

"Nonsense," said Chirac. "Your husband and I have agreed to let bygones be bygones. We must now rebuild Franco-American relations. Some champagne, my dear?"

Several hours passed before the first lady and Chirac ended their visit. One US official reported that, after the rendezvous, Mrs. Bush appeared "quite tranquil and relaxed. She had a certain glow about her. I guess they had a very good meeting."

President Chirac then helped the first lady into her overcoat, kissed her hand and said, "Au revoir, Madame. Look me up next time you're in town."

Mrs. Bush was then escorted to a waiting car. "You'll call me, won't you?" she yelled as the door closed.

Mrs. Bush travels to Moscow later this week, where she will join Russian President Vladimir Putin and his wife, Lyudmila, in a meeting to bolster US "“ Russia relations.

"It's going to be just the three of us," said Mrs. Bush to reporters. "I'm quite excited about it."
