In Italy, Bush confers with pope, Prodi
The president, who became ill Friday, was still suffering some affects of a stomach problem.
Spokeswoman Dana Perino said the president was “not 100 percent,” but “it’s not slowing him down a bit.” As previously scheduled, Mr. Bush had nothing on his schedule yesterday evening. He departs early today to visit Albania and Bulgaria.
Mr. Bush also met privately with former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, a like-minded conservative and strong ally of the president’s.
“He is the opposition leader, and he is a friend,” Mr. Bush said, explaining his decision to visit with Mr. Berlusconi. He said Mr. Prodi didn’t “blame” him for stopping to chat with the prime minister’s predecessor.
