Six questions/observations addressed to President Bush by ABC News co-anchor Elizabeth Vargas in the interview she conducted with him today:

"Your desk is so clean Mr. President."

"It's interesting you hold the most powerful position in the world, truly, but what do you think you were put on this Earth to do?"

"Flying you just feel awful. No matter how great and disciplined you are in the flight, it's really hard."

"You're a morning exerciser right?"

"You were talking about the importance of keeping your friendships. I think something many people have been struck by particularly with your staff is the enormous loyalty that you seem to inspire in them."

"How are the dogs?"

In the Republican utopia, all presidential interviews (at least with Republican presidents) would sound like this.

(Admittedly, these are from the softball, stroll-through-the-Rose-Garden part of the interview, not the (allegedly) substantive part, in which Bush insists that everything is on course in Iraq, the Department of Homeland Security, and the economy.)
