Bush going to Vietnam

Melissa McEwan: H.W. frantically dials Texas Air Guard out of habit
As promised back in August, President Bush is finally going to visit Vietnam for the first time for the Pacific Rim summit. Reportedly, "terrorism and bird flu will be the dominant topics of discussion."

Considering that Bush's failure as a soldier may be eclipsed only by his failures in diplomacy and reducing terrorism, I'm fairly certain this is one scenario where "Better Never Than Late" would be the appropriate back-asswards aphorism.
