← return to Fishwrap

Q: About two Saturdays ago, for two hours and five minutes, you were technically acting president of the United States when Mr. Bush invoked the 25th amendment. So that certainly made you part of the executive branch.\ \ \ THE VICE PRESIDENT: Correct.\ \ \ Q: Did you take any presidential actions during that time?\ \ \ THE VICE PRESIDENT: No, I basically wrote a letter to my grandkids.\ \ \ Q: As acting president?\ \ \ THE VICE PRESIDENT: As acting President.\ \ \ Q: What did you say in that letter?\ \ \ THE VICE PRESIDENT: A souvenir for them to have down the road some day.\ \ \ Q: Were you tempted to take any actions during that period?\ \ \ THE VICE PRESIDENT: No, I was not.
— Jon Ward, White House correspondent, The Washington Times
