Bush Had a Bummer Trip

ROME, June 9   After braving an upset stomach in Germany and being greeted by crowds of protesters in Poland and Italy, the U.S. president probably thought things could not get much worse - and then his car broke down Saturday.  On Saturday, Bush arrived in Italy, where he held talks with Pope Benedict XVI, but later during his tour of the city his limousine broke down and a reserve vehicle had to be rushed in.
Moreover, the new limo was too big to squeeze through the gates of the U.S. Embassy, and the U.S. leader had to walk the remaining distance.

The specter of the Iraqi war followed him in Rome, as thousands of people marched through the streets shouting "No Bush, no war."
